Biography contributed by John E


Mr. Charles Anthony Brough, a former captain of the A.I.F., died in Melbourne Hospital on Friday, aged 43 years. For some years he was actively associated with the Young Australia League. The elder son of the Rev. A. W. Brough, of Erode, Southern India, Mr. Brough was born in Maitland, and was educated at Newington College. At the outbreak of hostilities in 1914, he enlisted in the Light Horse, and saw service on Gallipoli and in other theatres of war. In 1923, he was appointed to take charge of a New South Wales contingent of 98 boys, who made an educational tour of Western Australia, under the auspices of the Young Australia League. In the following year he took a party of Y.A.L. boys to the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley. Subsequently, he was engaged in business in Sydney and in Melbourne, but had been a resident of the lastnamed city in recent years." - from the Sydney Morning Herald 26 Jul 1933 (
