George Mossop

Always a smile, even in ice, mud and slush. Optimistic George wrote home after seeing amazing Stonehenge and said “There is some beautiful scenery in old England,¬† but still Sunny Australia will do for me.”

Ellis Richard Wilkinson

Ellis Richard Wilkinson was a butcher from Golden Square. He’d gotten married mere months after the declaration of World War One. As he reluctantly left his wife and young daughter at home, Ellis had no idea he was bidding them a final farewell.

Robert Henry Adam

Robert ‘Chap’ Adam enlisted at age 26 and joined the 38th Battalion alongside his mates from Bears Lagoon.
