PRIVATE G. B. FULLERTON
Elmore 27th June.
Private George B. Fullerton, son of Mr. Peter Fullerton, the well-known farmer and contractor of Avonmore, is reported to have died from wounds in France on the 12th inst. The deceased soldier sailed with the 38th (Bendigo) Battalion in June of the last year, and had been seven months in the trenches in France. He was 27 years of age, and a popular figure in social and athletic circles in this district. Much sympathy has been expressed at the loss of a fine manly character.

  3. Yes our relatives would have known and fought together. Both from country Victoria and in the same battalion.

    I have enjoyed (that is the wrong word as it is not a good theme) reading the blogs about George.
