Biography contributed by Stephen Brooks

He was killed in action on 26 August 1916 in France, aged 19. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial, France. His brother 512 Pte Joseph Bardioux died of wounds in Egypt on 30 April 1915.

Only indication of how he died in the Red Cross Files are 'He may be a prisoner of war in Germany. He was last seen with other members of his machine gun crew, surrounded by Germans'.

Their Dad, Joseph Felix Bardioux was a Frenchman who came to Australia in 1889. His address was in Carlton Victoria and he was a chef by occupation. In 1934 he applied for a certificate of naturalization, stating that he had 2 sons killed during WW1 fighting for Australia, and lived in Carlton for the past 44 years. He had to renounce his French citizenship and was successful, but passed away in 1936.
