Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Marie B. E. McGuire, of "Medcola," Penshurst St., Willoughby, New South Wales, and the late Duncan H. McGuire.

Major Albert George McGuire, who left for the front with the 1st Batallian, under Lieutenant-Colonel Dobbin, and is reported wounded, is 24 years of age. He was the eldest son of Mrs. M McGuire, of Penshurst-street, Willoughby, and was educated at Fort-street High School. He joined the New South Wales Irish Rifle Regiment only five years ago as a second lieutenant, and in 1912 he was given his company in the Stanmore Company of the 33rd Infantry. He got his captaincy only last year, and has since been promoted major.
