Yes that certainly looks like him! Thank you very much.

I did have that he died in Bexley in 1968? Mmm, wonder when he came back to the UK.

Hi there,

I have been researching my family history for a few years now and have just come across my great grandad was enlisted in the above. This was from Sep 1915 to 1918 where he apparently states he was medically discharged!

I just really would like to know whether he stayed in Australia or came back to the UK?
