Private Vivian E. BAKER 3247
Submitted by: Kim Cummins

Private V E Baker was born at Blandford NSW. He was a 22 year old Farmer at the time of enlistment. His next of kin was father, Alfred Andrew Baker of Blandford. He enlisted on the 28th July 1915 at Newcastle NSW. He embarked at Sydney on H.M.A.T A14 Euripides on the 2nd November 1915. He joined the 55th Battalion AIF and marched out to Fromelles. On the 20th July 1916, Private Baker was in the front line trenches at Fleurbaix and at 9am, when shooting over the parapet, he was hit by a bullet in the left temple. The bullet went right through his steel helmet and came out through his right ear. His body was left in the trenches when the 55th Battalion was withdrawn on the morning of the 20th July. He was known as "Vivi".
