Private George Elliott. Died 8 June 1917 at Messines Ridge.  He was 28 years old and a stretcher bearer.

George with his parents and four sisters – before his enlistment.

Yvonne Perkins on her Stumbling Through the Past blog shares her research on the early commemorations of Anzac Day.  Well worth a read on this Anzac Day 2011.
