Biography contributed by Sharyn Roberts

Geneology SA record confirms that the second Given Name is BRACKEN not Breacken or Breacker. BRACKEN accords with the RSL Membership details and he was interred at Centennial Park (SA) with the spelling of that name as Bracken. This record had been amended to accord with birth and death records.
