Biography contributed by Sue Slater

6013A Fred Green enlisted on 29 Nov 1915 at Dubbo, on the same day and place as his Uncle Tom (1924 Thomas Bennet Green).

Fred's only sibling, 2666 Edward Charles (Ted) Green enlisted in Dubbo 5 months later. Up until enlistment they all lived and worked at "Wildwood".

Ted was alloted to 49th Reinf 1st Bttn., and left Sydney aboard HMAT Wiltshire on 22 Aug 1916. Disembarking at Fremantle, W.A., he was reassigned to 21/11 Reinf on 9 Ooct 1916, leaving Australia on 10 Oct 1916 aboard HMAT Suffolk. Fred disembarked at Plymouth on 02 Dec 1916, again he was reassigned, this time to the 11th Bttn., on 18 Dec 1916 and then finally to 53rd Bttn., on 14 Feb 1917.

Fred arrived in Etaples on 14 Feb 1917, his time in Europe must not have be easy, not only did he lose his uncle, brother & cousin 2034A Sid Hartwell, but he was hospitalised for severe Trench Fever in June, 1917 and was wounded three times. The first when he was shot in the hand on 19 May 1917, then he was gassed on 17 Apr 1918 and finally suffered a GSW to both legs on 1 Sep 1918. Moved to 3rd Aux. Hospital in Dartford for a few months, Fred was shipped back to Australia on 2 Jan 1919 aboard Karmala.

Fred returned to Gularambone for a short time and then moved to Queensland having little contact with our family after moving. It is believed that Fred never married.
