6th Machine Gun Company AIF


My particular ANZAC interest is with 6th MGC and I am in the process of photographing all of the CWGC headstones for members of the above unit. I would very much like to hear from any relatives of men who served. I have also conducted a great deal of research into the action at First Bullecourt. One of my wife's relatives Pte. Henry Wood was killed whilst serving with the unit at this infamous action.

Re: 6th Machine Gun Company AIF


My Great Uncle Lt. Alfred Lindsay (Lin) Newland, Kia 8 November 1916 France, signed up with your relative Ernest William Peacock along with W D Cameron from Laverton Victoria. They all served with the 22nd Battalion in 1915, Peacock and Newland both served in the 6th Machine Gun Company 1916-1917. Lin was very good mates with Ernest William Peacock racing and fixing bikes.
I have a photo of the three in uniform before leaving for Egypt. They are listed on the Laverton School honour board now in Atona Meadows. We had a day in 2016 to celebrate the unvealing of 4 ww1 interpretation boards and the reconditioning of the honour board completed by Hobsons bay council
