Biography contributed by Chris Buckley

Arthur was the second of ten children of George Treagle (born 1870 in Ipswich, QLD) and Maria (Lizzie) Elizabeth Pinney (born 1870 in Northamptonshire, England). George was a Confectioner in 1891 when he married Lizzie in Ipswich. They settled there and raised their family until George's death in 1917. Following their father's death, his sons continued the confectionary shop, some of them later moving to Brisbane and Sydney and continuing work as Confectioners.

Arthur was in Rockhampton, QLD working as a Motor Mechanic when he enlisted in the AIF in 1916. He served as a Driver (Service No:13507) with Australian Motor Transport Coys and was Discharged in September 1919. Brother-in-Law William Patrick Harkins (Private, Service No:558) served in WWI and brothers Stephen (Steve) Francis (Private, Service No:Q148338) and Thomas (Tom) Joseph (Private, Q00268) served in the ACMF in WWII.

Returning to Ipswich, QLD, Arthur worked in the family confectionary business, and in 1924 he married Ida Ellen Ward (born 1904 in Ipswich, QLD). He and Ida settled in Ipswich, and in the early 1930s Arthur commenced working as a Motor Driver. Arthur died in 1976 and Ida in 1985.
