Biography contributed by Adelaide High School

Charles Mugford  embarked to Eygpt to battle at Gallipoli on the 21st September 1915. Like many other soldiers, he was admitted to the hospital almost a month after fighting. After Gallipoli, he was sent up to England. From there he then joined the 10th Battalion and went to battle on the Western Front. 

Charles managed to survive the war although he was admitted to the hospital many times. He returned to Australia on 16th July 1919 and was discharged on 9th September 1919.
