Biography contributed by tony griffin

Fred Green was the son of F. A. Green of Bolton Lanes, Lancashire, England. 19 year old Fred had emigrated as part of the South Australian British Farm Apprentices Scheme 1913—1914. His host farmers were J. D. Dennis and W. Kirk, both of Clements Gap.

Fred enlisted at Morphettville on 30 September 1914. He was allocated to 1st Australian Stationary Hospital and sailed from Adelaide aboard HMAT A55 “Kyarra” on 28 November. 1st Australian Stationary Hospital served at Gallipoli during the second half of that campaign and then relocated to Egypt. On 14 September 1916 the unit embarked from Alexandria and relocated to England where it was renamed 3rd Australian Auxiliary Hospital. In May 1917 Fred was taken on strength of 16 Field Ambulance and on 12 October proceeded overseas to France where he was attached to 1st Australian General Hospital. Fred’s service records state that on 20 October his name was “brought to the notice of the Secretary of State for War, for valuable services in connection with war”. On 26 May 1918 Fred was taken to hospital suffering from PUO. He was invalided to England and admitted to Richmond Military Hospital.
