Walter and Helena Cass

Join this Vicfix campaign to unravel the story of Walter and Helena Cass

Vicfix is improving the searchability of digitised newspaper articles and making the hidden details of Victoria's rich history available for everyone.

About Walter and Helena Cass

Brigadier Walter Cass was involved in the Gallipoli landing and was at the forefront of fighting at the Somme and Fromelles. After the war his wife, Helena, went on to become a well-known journalist. The Library's Walter and Helena Cass Collection appeal is raising money to preserve the couple's treasures – including original photographs, military trench maps, wartime uniforms and love letters – that give us a new, intimate perspective on events that shaped 20th-century Australia.

Historic Victorian newspapers reported on Walter being honoured by the King for his war service; printed notices of Walter and Helena's marriage, society gatherings attended by the couple, and Walter's untimely death; and published original articles on war and politics by Helena.
