Organic literature

The Lost Battalion is an Organic Publishing project. Readers can see the consecutive chapters take shape as the story unfolds.

This website is a repository for information and stories on former South Australian 2/27th Battalion soldiers. Details and images submitted by family members will be considered for inclusion at the discretion of the editor.

The Lost Battalion is an experiment in organic literature and will evolve as fresh or more relevant information comes to light.

New pages will regularly be uploaded on this website and the information made available for reading on smart phone. In time, the content will also be released in ebook and printed book form.

The goal is to produce and release the ebook and printed version of The Lost Battalion  for the commemoration of Anzac Day, April 25, 2022 and to mark the 80th Anniversary of the end of the Kokoda Campaign in November of that year.
