Shared note

He served overseas during WW1 and there is a copy of his Service Record on this computer. He enlisted on 7 January 1916, and served in 23 Battalion. At enlistment he was about 5'11" tall and 148 pounds, with brown eyes and dark brown hair. I suspect that when he enlisted he was a carpenter/joiner living at Apsley, but that at some stage while overseas his wife moved to 11 Dudley Street, Fitzroy, Victoria to be with her in-laws.

He was still in Melbourne at Royal Park in June 1916, but he left for overseas in the Miltiades on 1 August 1916, disembarked at Plymouth on the 25 Sept 1916, and by late Nov 1916 he was in France. He then seemed to be back and forward from England to France and in hospital frequently with illness. His Regimental Number was 5431. He returned home on the Swakopmund on 2 Aug 1919 - shows how long with shipping and other problems it took to get some troops home.

Was he a signaller/engineer?
