Brother of 2215 Pte. Clarence Archibald Sullivan (/explore/people/294616)

"The sad news was received on Saturday evening that Pte. Albert Sullivan was killed in action in France on July 7th. The fallen soldier was only 18 years of age in last April and was 2½ years fighting. Enlisting in Melbourne at the age of 15, he presented such a manly appearance that he passed as 21. Deceased had his 16th birthday while on the water." - from the Newstead Echo 24 Jul 1918
