Son of William Anthony and E H STORY, "Blairgowrie", 18 Marshall Street, Stanmore, NSW

Bertram served in Palestine (Gaza and Jordan). Sgt. Story and Tpr Roy Kelly were taken prisoners by the Turks at the Gaza Battle 19 April 1917, but made a dash through snipers and machine gun fire, and regained their own lines.  Bertram had five bullet holes in his hat.  For their bravery they were both promoted as corporals.
