After the evacuation of the peninsula he was sent to France in April, and was killed in action at Pozieres on July 30. While in Egypt he met his brother (the late Pte. Frank A. Clarke), whom he had not seen for years. The latter enlisted with the Queensland forces, and was killed on August 17 last year. The late Pte. A. J. S.
