Beyond 1914 is looking for information on this person. They appear in the database because when the Book of Remembrance was published in 1939 it included a list of over 500 people who had joined the University Company or been accepted into the A.I.F. They were in training camp in Liverpool, NSW when peace was declared and so did not see active service. Beyond 1914 wants to recognise the efforts of these people but at present we don’t know anything about them. If you know who this is and have some information, please see our contribute page.
