Remembered Today:

45th Infantry Battalion Sydney Departure 22/5/1916


Recommended Posts

Greeting to all and thank you in advance. I am trying (thus far in vain) to find out the transport John Ashton Hembrough (#1929) of the 45th departed from Sydney on. His diary states "May 22nd 1916 Sailed from Sydney, May 24th arrived at Melbourne, May 25th Left fro Fremantle, May 31st arrived at Fremantle, June 1st Sailed for Durban."  I am having a bit of trouble as keep hitting a deadens at AWM embarkation lists. Hoping there may be some information or advice from the forum. Thank you and best regards  Michael575344675_68.jpg.8439fae52e21712d83db9405994ab04f.jpg

On AWM looked for 45th Battalion Nominal Roll which lists the different embarkations.

Found in 2nd to 8th Reinforcements.

Scroll through file on page 6 is heading embarked Sydney HMAT A69 Warilda 22nd May 1916.

He is .listed on the  page 8.
