All these soldiers were killed in action, or died of their wounds, whilst fighting on the fields. Hundreds of young men died from the effects of war after returning home from duty. Physical wounds were not the only problems they dealt with! Their stories should also be told but finding them will be harder ...

keeping with this 'Caulfield Theme' is a story of:
Bernard 'babe' Haines from Murrumbeena who enlisted at 14, sailed off to war aged 15 and was shot by Germans in the leg, requiring an amputation at the thigh when he was 16. He had 41 operations at Caulfield Hospital and died there in 1926.
He was 25 years old.
The Argus (Melbourne), 18 March 1926 EIGHT YEARS IN HOSPITAL
Military Patient's Death
General regret is expressed at the Caulfield Military Hospital at the death, on Tuesday afternoon, of Bernard Haines, who has been an inmate of the hospital for eight years. "Babe" Haines, as he was known, underwent 40 operations at the hospital, but was, nevertheless, one of the most cheerful patients, and was very popular with all. Shortly after the war broke out Haines enlisted, and sailed with the 20th Infantry Brigade of the A.I.F. He was then aged only 14 years, and for which reason that he was later referred to as "Babe." Soon after he landed in Egypt he was transferred to France, and at Bapaume, in 1917, after two years of service abroad, he was seriously wounded. It was found necessary to amputate one of his legs, and soon afterwards he returned to Australia, and was sent, eventually, to the Caulfield Hospital. He spent much of his time in the hospital in endeavouring to alleviate the sufferings of others. Soon after he entered the hospital he took woodcarving and art leather work as hobbies, and became very proficient in both.
Tho funeral will leave the home of Haines's parents in Newlyn street, Caulfield, for the Brighton Cemetery, this afternoon, at 3 o'clock.

Good morning ngairedith
I note an error in the entry for Charles Denbigh Huon. The name is "Huon", and "Houn" is incorrect.
His father Gabriel Louis Marie Huon de Kerilleau was a Frenchman who arrived in Australia on "Surprize" in 1794. His family and descendants settled much of the Upper Murray.
Gabriel was my 4th ggrandfather.
