About the Author

Sydney Loch was born in Ealing in 1888 and emigrated to Australia in 1905. An Anzac veteran, Loch wrote the once-banned, but now classic, account of Gallipoli, To Hell and Back. In 1922, Loch and his wife, Joyce, worked as aid workers in Thessaloniki, helping many Greeks escape Turkey and later rescued thousands of Polish and Jewish children from the Nazis during World War II, setting up a Polish refugee camp in Haifa. After the war, they moved to Thessaloniki, where Loch died in 1955.
