Biography contributed by Stephen Brooks

A brother, Private George Leonard Twight, 1516, was killed in action at Gallipoli during the Lone Pine battle, and two others, Albert Charles and Leslie Norman Twight enlisted and returned to Australia safely, although Albert died in 1922, highly probably as a result of his war service.

Red Cross File for Charles Twight states, "At Villers Bretonneux about the end of April or the beginning of May we found a body in No Man's Land in which there was a wallet and other things belonging to a man of this name. They have been forwarded to his married sister at Northcote." (Private. R.T Bennett, No, 7443)
