During and following the 1914-18 war a number of editions of All-Australia Memorial were published for three states - New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria. As far as can be ascertained the Victorian edition was published in 1917, and New South Wales and South Australian editions in 1919 and 1920, with multiple variants for these states. To complicate things further some additional Victorian biographies and photos were included in some later editions principally publishing biographies from NSW and SA.

Archive CD Books Australia would welcome information from any reader of this edition about possible further Victorian variants in other editions.

This Victorian edition is a wonderful record, with a detail historical outline of the war from an Australian perspective, plus an extensive reference section and hundreds of biographies. All complemented by thousands of photos, many of Victorians who served.
