    • Serviceman 358, Louis signed up for Military Service with the 40th Battalion, Australian Infantry Force. He departed from Hobart, Tasmania, on 1st July 1916, bound for Devonport (Plymouth), England, where he arrived on 22 August.

      Louis was dispatched to France on 22 November 1916 where he was attached to the 3rd Divisional Trench Mortar Battery. It would appear that he was taken ill on 27 March 1917 and admitted to hospital. Although unspecific, the word "Rash" appears on his record; perhaps this might refer to the effects of gas? Louis was released from hospital on 1 April 1917 and returned to his unit.

      Louis was charged with being Absent Without Leave on 6 October 1917 when he failed to return to his unit after being given leave in Paris. He was absent for 4 days. He was awarded forfeiture of 26 days pay, a total of £6-10/- (6 pounds and 10 shillings). This was not the first time that Louis had been AWL. There were previous incidents during his military service.

      The final entry in his service record is for 10 Febraury 1918 which, like so many others, just says "Killed in Action" in the Field with the BEF (British Expeditionary Force).

      Louis full Military Record can be found at the National Archives of Australia.
