Biography contributed by Sharon Petch

Embarkation Roll (www.awm.gov.au) has incorrectly recorded Surname as BUCKLY instead of BUCKBY

He was my maternal grandmother's brother and the surname is Buckby not Buckly.

He was one of 5 brothers that fought in WW1. They were all from Charters Towers in Queensland.
