I wonder if anyone has these names on their family trees. I should like to
establish that they were Jews. Two brothers, ALfred MARKS and Lionel MARKS, were
killed in action within three days of each other (on 25 and 28 April 1915) at the
start of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign, in the First Battle of Krithia. Nether
body was recovered so there are no gravestones and they are instead commemorated
on memorials. Alfred served in the Border Regiment and Lionel was in the
Australian Imperial Force.

Their father was Louis Joseph MARKS of 88 Fenchurch Street, London, EC, and later
of 11 Oxford Circus, Noting HIll, London (but I cannot locate that street.)

I should be very glad to have any information about them or their family.
