Details: 

Private George Healy (Service no. 633) was born in Wales circa 1887. He travelled to Australia and was employed as a miner prior to enlistment.

He embarked on HMAT A23 Suffolk on 18th October, 1914 with F Company 2nd Battalion. After training in Egypt he landed on Gallipoli on 25th and saw service until the evacuation. George seems to have been injury and illness free during this time, one of very few. On 28th October, 1915 he became a batman to Major King. After the evacuation George was transferred to 5th Division. George saw service on the Western Front and seems to again come through the war without any injuries.

He returned to Australia in November 1919 and was discharged from the AIF on 27th November, 1919.

George married Elizabeth Williams and they had a daughter.

George left Mount Kembla and in 1928 was living in Catherine Hill Bay.
