Biography contributed by chris senti

Alexander Frank Alexander signed up in Leeton, NSW, officially enlisting at Cootamundra.

His name is on our town's monument as A. F. Alexander.

A few years ago I coincidently found his medals and death plaque on ebay. I treasure our town's history and this medal set. Alexander Alexander - how many others of the 100,000 AIF soldiers would have the same first and last name?
