His Last Letter to His Parents dated May 15th 1915 ...he was then presumably at the Dardanelles, gallantly fighting along with the Australians.
I am still alive and well. We have had some hard fighting, shoulder to shoulder with the Australians. The Australian is a fine fighting man, especially in the nature of the country that we are at present in. He is strong fearless, reckless to a fault; he, would share the best bieley of tea with you. I am proud to be able to say that I have fought shoulder to shoulder with such fine men. I hope you are all getting on alright at home. You might try and send me a little box of cigarettes, securely tied. We have made great headings in this country.
