I have decided to write a series of posts over the next couple of years to highlight all the men in my extended family who enlisted in World War 1.
So far I have identified 26 soldiers who enlisted between 20 August 1914 and 2 November 1918 and I feel sure I have missed some. Of the twenty six, five were killed overseas or died here in Australia.
At this stage, I don't have information about them at my fingertips. I don't know if they were all single or if some were married with children. I have photos for some of them, but not all. They enlisted in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
My aim is to post on the 100th anniversary of their enlistment.
My first post will be on 20th August 2014 and the final one in the series on 2 November 1918.
Tonight I have found another soldier. So my tally now is 27 soldiers of whom 6 were killed.
