Query by eilsjo

John Mackenzie as far as I know was born in Scotland, don't know where. He had one son Thomas Timothy Mackenzie, born 17/7/1923. John served in WW1. Fought at Gallipoli as he was awarded the 50th anniversary medal. He was a member of the Victorian Police Force in the 1920's.

Thomas Timothy Mackenzie married Lila May Gammon and had four children John, Peter, Patrick and Joanne

I am searching for information for my children, who are John Mackenzie's great grand children.

If you're in Victoria you could go to the police museum. It has photographs, documents etc and police service records from 1853 to today. It's at the world trade centre.
It hasn't been open long. I wouldn't mind going an having a look myself.

In the mean time I will see what I can see. I'm assuming he was born around 1896 if he joined up.

He was living at 336 Russell St, Melbourne in 1919 working as a constable. That's a start.

Good luck with that eilsjo, let me know what you find out, won't you.
I found out that the place at 336 Russell was very cramped shared accommodation for the police and on the list of reasons that caused the strike.
