I believe they may be at the AWM (Australian War Memorial) in Canberra.
Steve Becker is the man who knows!
They may be originals or microfische.
It would be even better if they could be accessed via the internet!
Over to you, Steve.

Michael,
Dave is right the Red Cross Cards or to be more correct Files are contained at the AWM.

You can accese them by asking. You will get a list of names where you can find your name.

Inside the file are the Orginal letters to the red cross and the replys from the soldiers interviewed by the Red Cross. These are all original Doc's and you have full acceses to them at the reseach room of the AWM.

The only problem I had was that I could not photo copy them and had to write out each one by hand.

You can also read AWM magizine "Wartime" publication Vol 3 Page 35-36.

As they include some of the details involved.

S.B

Mick,
Having just returned from the AWM. I can say many of these cards are now of the webb site.

The problem is they can only be looked at the AWM, for now! as they will not display them on the site till all of the records are copied.

It should be a great addition to their site when finished.

To all who want to check these cards they are now on the AWM webb site.
They are of great value and well worth the look.

They cover most men who were wounded, Killed or missing during the Great War.

Good luck

Have to give the AWM a huge thanks for this. Having these Red Cross files accessible on the web is very handy.
Regards
Andrew
