Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Ernest G and Miriam TONKIN, 405 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill, NSW

Graham enlisted under the alias of Graham Thomas CLIVE and gave his mother's name as Mary CLIVE residing at 159 Norton Street, Leichhardt, NSW

He also lied about his age when he enlisted as he would have only been 16 1/2 years old.  He saw service in France and was wounded at Messines but returned to duty.  He was wounded a second time at Dernacourt in April 1918 and invalided to Australia and discharged as medically unfit.
