Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Henry and Mary MORSCHEL, Lismore, New South Wales

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Morschel have received letters and field cards by the last mail from their son, Private Patrick Francis Morschel, at the Dardanelles.  He is quite well and reckons he has been luck so far, as he was in the first landing of the Australias, only being incapacitated for a couple of weeks since then through a slight wound on the wrist.  He is back on active service again and says he would like a lot of his mates to be over with him. - 23 October 1915
