      On 1930, 1936 census an engineer living at Ardath, Alexander St Hunters Hill Sydney


      Came out to Australia in 1919 with brother Victor. Joined AIF and served Gallipoli where he was shell-shocked enough to be discharged to work in munitions. Married in 1918 to Florence L.Hubbard (St.Caths), before returning to Australia with his wife in 1920 (Service record). We knew his wife as Judy and they lived in Sydney, but I don't know if this is the same wife and Judy is just a nickname, or if he married again. I have his service record and will try to find shipping records of his return, which should give me his wife's name on passenger list. He died in Sydney. - Dorrit Foster
