Lance Corporal Robert Harold Brealey of Cherry Gardens

The last of the Brealey's (I think!). Robert Brealey was born in Cherry Gardens, SA but enlisted in WA. He was just 18 when he enlisted, and joined the 51st Bn in France in April 1918 just in time to re-take Villers-Brettoneux at the end of the German Spring Offensive and some of the later allied offensives that led to the end of the war. He survived and returned to WA, also serving in the Second World War. Again, no photograph as yet, but his WW2 file should have one... if all else fails.
