Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of James Edwin and Marion Wood. Native of Ballarat, Victoria

Amongst the casualties in the latest list appears the name of Lieut. H. V. Wood, killed in action in France. Lieut. Wood, who was a promising young dentist, enlisted as a private in 1915. When a sergeant, he was sent to the Bendigo camp. He received his commission in March, 1916, and was then transferred to the 39th Battalion, then training at Ballarat.
