Trooper Frank Terence Bush
Submitted by: Judith Dysart

At 18, Frank Bush wasn't a big lad, standing just 5ft 5 inches tall & weighing 141 lbs. Like many others, he thought he was headed for the adventure of a lifetime when he left his farm at Murrurundi, obtained a letter of consent from his parents & enlisted with the 15th Reinforcements of the 1st Light Horse Regiment on 12th September 1915.

Along with one of his mates, he left Sydney on the "Armadale" on 21st March 1916 bound for Egypt where he spent just one month at Tel-el-Kabir with the Light Horse Regiment.

Three days after celebrating his 19th birthday, Frank was transferred to the 1st Battalion Australian Field Artillery & left Egypt bound for Plymouth, England where he spent two months training before heading to France in August 1916.

The winter of 1916 was reported to have been one of the worst on record & Frank endured it as a Gunner with the 4th Australian Division Ammunition Column until mid December when he was admitted to hospital with influenza & nephritis.

On the 1st January 1917 Frank Bush passed away in Rouen hospital, 5 months shy of his 20th birthday & was buried at the Boisguillaume Communal Cemetery, Rouen, France.

Frank, your courage & contribution will not be forgotten
