Biography contributed by John Edwards

"A FIGHTING FAMILY. FATHER, BROTHERS, AND SON.

Official information has been received by Mrs. Green, of 43 Gould-street, city, that her eldest son, Private Jack Green, of the 13th Battalion, was killed in action in France on February 6, and that her husband, Private Cecil Claude (Goodie) Green is in hospital suffering from trench fever. Private Jack Green, who was only 17½ years of age, was a cinematograph operator when he enlisted. He left Sydney six months ago, and had only been a fortnight in the firing line when he was killed. His father, Private C. C. Green, has two brothers at the front, Private Harold F. Green, who was wounded some time ago, and is now back again in the trenches, and Private Herbert Green." - from the Sydney Morning Herald 08 Mar 1917 (nla.gov.au)
