Biography contributed by Geoffrey Gillon

[Births Mar 1892 Hall Philip Belford10b 420]

He was 23 and the son of Robert and Elizabeth Hall. Next of kin listed as his brother John Hall.

In the 1901 census he was aged 9, stepson of John Wallace, son of Elizabeth Wallace, born Bamburgh, resident South Victoria Terrace, Bamburgh, Belford, Northumberland; natural brother to Jane B (21), William (20), John (17), Albert (13), Dulcie R (12).

Bamburgh  is a village and civil parish on the coast of Northumberland, England.

The village is notable for the nearby Bamburgh Castle, a castle which was the seat of the former Kings of Northumbria, and for its association with the Victorian era heroine Grace Darling, who is buried there.

He emigrated to Australia aged 20.

He enlisted at Blackboy Hill, Perth, Western Australia.

His two brothers also fell:

Sapper Albert Hall, Service Number  461030, killed in action aged 31 whilst serving with the 15th Field Company, Royal Engineers.
