"Hutchison was born in Adelaide on 13 September 1888 to George Thomas Hutchison and his wife Emily Edith nee Dawe, who were married in Adelaide in 1886. His brother William Arthur was born on 18 March 1892 and his sister Bessie Melbourne was born on 1 January 1893. The two brothers may have been in Darwin on opposing cricket teams in 1914, because a W. Hutchison and an A. Hutchison appear in results from the period. There is an article discussing Alan Hutchison who had left Darwin for the Front travelling from Adelaide to Perth for his marriage. Notification of his marriage appeared in the Advertiser of the 8 November 1919. He applied for a licence as a business salesman in Adelaide on 13 March 1950. Hutchison was an active member of the RSL in Adelaide, organising activities for the 50th Battalion AIF Club in 1950 and was a member of the Burnside RSL in 1954." - READ MORE LINK (
