From Anzac 100 22nd Battalion
July 2, 2015

On 3rd July 1915 Edward Savage, Herbert Hosking and Robert Yule walked into a recruiting hall and enlisted into the AIF. By the end of the month all but three of the 154 men assigned to the 5th/22nd had signed up. As well as being one of the first to enlist, Private Hosking was the first of the 5th/22nd to be killed in action. Private Yule was also killed later in 1918. Despite being wounded twice at Pozieres and Bullecourt, Private Savage survived and remained with the Battalion until the end of the war.
