Biography contributed by Geoffrey Gillon

He was 21 and the son of John Grant Wilson and Mary Wilson (nee Byron), of "Linwood", Brunker St., Kurri Kurri, New South Wales.

Pumpherston is a small dormitory village in West Lothian, Scotland. Originally a small industrial village to the nearby shale mine and works, it now adjoins the new town of Livingston, which was constructed alongside Pumpherston in the late 1960s and quickly grew much larger than its neighbours.
