Biography contributed by Evan Evans

Dorset Tasmania History Society

Pte Cyril Fleming

James and Maria FLEMING came to Scottsdale in the 1880s where they had four children, two boys and two girls, though one boy died early. The remaining son, Cyril, married Rene Lily BAYLIS in 1911 and they had a daughter, Hazel, who lived only 21 days. In February 1915 they had a son, Ronald. Seven months later Cyril enlisted, then served for 18 months in Egypt, and the remainder of the war in France. His parents had moved to Gladstone and the people of that town were looking forward to his return after more than three years away when notice came through that he had died in France of bronchial pneumonia on 11 November 1918, the very day that the Armistice came into effect to end the war.
