Re: 15th Battalion -


Apologies to the board for dissappearing like that - have just moved countries.

I'm in the middle of cutting up a documentary I have made on the 15th Battalion - both Gallipoli and the Western front. Given the absolute battering the 15th took at Quinn's Post, its no wonder its memorial plaque at the Lone pine Memorial is at least double the length of any other [sign in to see URL] even sadder, I spent a lot of time retracing the abortive 4th Brigade attack of August 1915, where again the 15th was absolutely pounded. When you think August, Quinn's, Pozieres/Mouquet Farm, Bullecourt, Morlancourt, Hamel, Bray and then through to the Hindenburg Line Outposts - they certainly did their bit. My Grandfather copped a "blighty" at Sailly-le-sec during the "100 days of victory"......so bad, its lucky I even exist.
Happy to try and answer any questions.

Re: 15th Battalion -


Hello,

I've recently been sent a British War Medal awarded to 4789 Pte James Ford (15 Bn AIF)to return to his family.

Pte Ford was KIA on 27 Mar 18 at Villers Bretonneux and he is buried there. I have copies of his roll of honour card from the AWM and I'll get his service records from the NAA soon. His son lived in Inala Brisbane but was killed in a car accident about 30 years ago. I understand that the son's wife moved to the coast some time after that. They had a son and daughter.

Does anyone have any information about this chap or his family?

Yours in service,

Glyn

Re: 15th Battalion -


Dear Stumpy -sorry for no reply!
The fact of the matter is that I have been in a " Medical" position.
In the ,interim,I have seen written that the Hospital Ships weren't on situ till 3 days after the initial landings at Anzac.
Maybe the Turks were supposed to use blanks?
This harps back to the " superior" British intelligence-------------and ignoring the first principle of War---------do not underestimate the strenght of the enemy.
I am from Tasmania---most of my interest is on the 12th Battalion,grandfather was the BSM ( a regular member of the Australian Army)and was 3rd to enlist -Col Clarke was 1st!!-( he was killed about 2 pm first day).
The reason I stated that it might of been 5 days since evacuation is that on his Army records -he was evacuated on the 29th of April 1915!
He was shot in the jaw in the boats at about 6 am the 25th!!.
Cheers mate! Steve

Re: 15th Battalion -


My great Uncle, Lynton Goode, Army number 1817, was killed at Gallipoli on 7th August 1915. Have been trying to find out about him and his brothers for a while. He was in the 15th Bn. Has anyone got any info about he 15th or can direct me where to find it. He was infact a Brit and is incorrectly listed as an Aussie. Buried at Lone Pine.Any help guys would be appreciated. His Brother was killed in 1918 on the Western Front.

"History of the 15th Battalion AIF, War 1914 - 1918", by Lieut TP Chataway was published by William Books & Co Ltd in Brisbane 1948. Reprinted by John Burridge, Perth in the 1980s. I bleive John has a website - do a google search.

Re: 15th Battalion -


Book is now out of print, does anyone have one for sale or can photocopy one for me? Goiung to Gallipoli soon to visit the Lone Pine Cemetry to try and find him, it would be good to know a little about his battalion's actions in the field.

Re: 15th Battalion -


Still tracking down Private Lynton Goode's last [sign in to see URL] anyone help me with the following info:
1. How long did the troopship (in his case the Star of England which left Brisbane on April 8th 1915) take to get to Egypt?
2. I presume after a time in Egypt for further training he was then sent to Gallipoli. How long did it take by sea from Alex' to Gallipoli? and would he have landed in Anzac Bay?
any help greatly appreciated

Re: 15th Battalion -


Jerry-

Pte Lynton Goode has no known grave. His name appears on the Lone Pine memorial, which is located inside the grounds of the Lone Pine cemetery. This memorial commemorates those Australian soldiers (and some New Zealanders) who have no known graves, either because they were buried at sea, or their bodies were never found or never identified, or their grave was lost between the evacuation of Gallipoli and the return of allied soleiers in 1919.

As he was killed in action on 7th August 1915, Pte Goode died in the far north of the Anzac sector, near Suvla, and probably in the vicinity of Hill 60 or Hill 100, during the 4th Brigade's assault on Hill 971. The Red Cross file concerning his disappearance notes that he was not buried.

Regards,

Bryn
