Jim,
Tried to get you on the EMAil address you gave me but no luck!

What I was after is if can help me find some info on some soldiers who served both in WWI and WWII.

I tried to get these while down there but was told they would take longer then the time I had allowed.

Thanks

S.B

Steve,
Can you list the personnel and the information you require?

Unfortunately, it will be next week before I can get on to the task.

I am attending the Chief of Army's History Conference on Thursday and Friday of this week and the Military Historical Society of Australia's History Conference on the Saturday and Sunday. Monday is a public holiday in the ACT with no retrieval service at the NAA.

Rob,
I show him enlisting 28-6-15 and embarking with the 11R/3 LHR.

His name is shown as Roy Leland Pilgram Smith age 19 Farm Labourer from Stone Hut SA with his NOK at West Hilton SA.

He transfered to the AFC and RTA 3-7-19.

France would be right also as most of the men from the 1st Sqn AFC RTA in 4-3-19.
