Of the 416,809 Australian soldiers who enlisted to serve in WW1, more than 1,000 are believed to be Indigenous. The exact number of Indigenous Australians who served is not known as many enlistees lied about their personal details.
The photographs featured in this gallery have been gleaned from the Australian War Memorial's Indigenous Service page and show soldiers who were enlisted in WW1.
There are hundreds of names on the War Memorial's list of Indigenous soldiers, but most are without photos. We have excluded group photos, images with copyright restrictions and pictures where the identity of an individual was not clear.
At least one of the men in this gallery, Private Richard Martin, served on the Gallipoli Peninsula in the battle that has helped shape Australia's identity.
