Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

He was wounded at Gallipoli in August 1915 and as a result had a leg amputated but then returned to duty in a training capacity.

Mr. C. James, superintendent of railways Orange, formerly railway station-master at West Maitland, has been advised by the War Office, London, that his son Lieut. C.W. James, R.E., who was wounded at the Suvla Bay engagements in August, and taken to Malta Hospital, developed aneurism, and although the best medical skill and nursing were given him, it had been found necessary to amputate one of his legs.  A later advice states Lieut. James is out of danger and making good progress.  Mr. James's youngest son left last week for the front with the A.A.M.C.
