Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Mon 15 Sept 1813 (p.7):
The Procession
The procession was undoubtedly the finest that Mudgee ever saw.  It was about 1¼ mile long, and comprised a large number of magnificent trades, business and humorous displays.
There was a large attendance of members of the various local military forces.  First came the members of the A.L.H. in full uniform and mounted upon the high-class horseflesh, which has more than once, earned the praise of inspecting officers.  They were led by Lieut Nickoll.  ………………

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 20 Aug 1914 (p.21):
Lieut Nickoll asks for the names of horsemen willing to join the Australian expeditionary force.  Applicants would be all the more welcome if they had previous training, but this is not essential.  All applications should be in by 3 o’clock to-morrow.

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 24 Aug 1914 (p.1):
Convivial Farewell To Departing Soldiers
On Thursday night last the members of the local A.L.H. establishment and a number of townspeople attended at the drill hall to bid farewell to Lieut Nickoll and other volunteers for the Australian Expeditionary Force.  The gathering was an informal one and of a happy-go-lucky nature.
Mr C.G. Madell proposed the toast of “Lieut Nickoll and his Brave Comrades.”  …………………………

‘Stark Staring Mad’
How the Australians Fought
Letter from the Front
Lieut Oliver Nickoll, of the A.L.H., who has since been wounded, writes to his parents, Dr and Mrs Harvey Nickoll, of Mudgee, under date May 17:–
“I have not got any writing paper with me, but a message book comes in handy.  I am on Gallipoli Peninsula, but beyond that I can’t tell you our position.  I don’t think much of infantry work, but it is better than sitting in Egypt doing nothing.  The country here is rough and very steep and if we stay here much longer I think we shall grow claws.  Our trip here from Alexandria was quite uneventful, and only one man got hit landing: that was by a spent bullet which knocked his front teeth out.  A torpedo boat took us from the transport and emptied us out on a pontoon on the beach.  We sat on a hillside there for about five hours, and got our first taste of shrapnel, which was bursting quite close to us, but fortunately no one got hit.  Then we moved off towards the firing line, and bivouacked about 330 yards from it, in a hollow.  In spite of incessant firing on the Turk’s part, I think we all slept the sleep of the just.
Next morning the officers and N.C.O.’s were taken into the trenches to have a look round before taking them over from the people then holding them.  At midday we took possession, and we have been here ever since.  That was on May 13, and to-day is the 17th.  For three weeks now this scrap has been going on, and the firing continues incessantly day and night.  It has not stopped for three seconds since we came here, and the other people say it was just the same while they were here.  I have met quite a number of “Shore” old boys.  Jack Massie is one of them, and he is quite well and happy as a king.
By Jove, our infantry have made a name for themselves, and the things they have done here are nothing short of marvellous.  British regular officers say they never saw or heard of anything like it.  I know that when I look at the places they took at the point of the bayonet I can’t understand how they did it.  I think the fact of the matter is they went stark, staring mad.  The Turks go for their lives now at the sight of a bayonet.  Sometimes, at night, they sneak up to the trenches and throw bombs in, but if we just hold up a bayonet over the top and shake it a bit they go for their lives.  The other night we had to cover an advance of some of our people with rifle fire, and we had a great time.  Rifles got too hot to hold, and language too hot to listen to; but although our men took the trenches they had to leave them owing to machine-gun fire.  Ronald and all others are well.  Mail just going.”

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 8 Jul 1915 (p.17):
Mudgee Men at the Front – Doing Well
Dr Harvey Nickoll sends us an extract from a letter received yesterday from his son, Lieut Nickoll.  It reads: “When I left all the Mudgee men were alright. ….. Sergeant Wright covered himself with glory, and saved us a lot of annoyance by finding and shooting a sniper, who was worrying us behind our trenches.”

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW), Mon 12 Jul 1915 (p.5):
Lieutenant J.O.H. Nickoll (wounded) is the eldest son of Dr Harvey Nickoll, of Mudgee, and grandson of the late G.T. Fleming, of Albury.  He was educated at the Mudgee Grammar School and Sydney Church of England Grammar School.  He was a keen football, cricket, and polo player.  After leaving school he went to Lake Midgeon Station, Narrandera.  On his return to Mudgee he joined the local troop of Light Horse as 2nd lieutenant.  On the outbreak of war he volunteered, and sailed with the 1st A.I.F. as 2nd lieutenant in C Squadron of the 1st Regiment.  Captain Smith, in a letter, says: – “Although Lieutenant Nickoll’s left arm was nearly blown off at the shoulder, he kept his men in hand; and when we had driven off the Turks, which we did with great loss, he was able to walk 50 yards to the dressing station.”  His left arm was amputated, and he was taken to Malta.

The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate (NSW), Fri 23 Jul 1915 (p.3):
Letters From the Front
In a letter under date 5th June, Sergeant Fred Ballhausen gives an interesting account to “Mother and all” of the happenings at the front.
The first of my mates to get hit was Eric Dowling, late of Burroway, who had a bullet take his teeth out, but he kept going.  The corporal who was promoted to my place as Lance-Sergeant – F.H. Paul – was shot dead, and such a fine chap.  Two officers, J.O.H. Nicholl and Edmonds were also wounded.  The latter came to the office during the week to see me, and hopes to return to the front shortly.  I had a P.C. from Captain Smith, saying he was O.K., which is good news.  The First L.H. were in the big fight, when the Turks lost the 3000, and to hear it described by one that took part in it, it is grand.  Up to this time, when the Turks made a charge, they came nearly to our trenches, and our men would spring out and after them.  Their game then was to turn and run, and our men would be exposed to the fire of concealed guns and machine guns.  This time they charged to within 20 yards of the trenches, but our men stayed in their trenches, and our machine guns fairly mowed them down together with rifle fire.  ………………………………………………..

Letters from Sergt Jack Wright – How He Was Hit
Lieut Nickoll’s Amputation
Following are letters received by Miss F. Rope from Sergeant J.R. Wright, of Buccaroo, who was wounded at Gallipoli:–
Valletta, Malta, 22nd July 1915
Lieut Oliver Nickoll is here.  He called in this evening to see me.  He is looking well.  His arm was amputated at the shoulder.  I am very sorry for him.  He was a good officer, and it was a bad day for us when we lost him.  He was a favorite amongst them all.  He is going to England from here, and will be sailing in about a month’s time.
Oliver Nickoll is still here.  He is in a ward about 200 yards from me, and comes across nearly every day to see me.  ………………………………………………….

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 30 Dec 1915 (p.12):
An Interesting Letter
From Private Don Lowe
The following letter has been received by us from Private Don Lowe, of Mudgee, from the military pay office, in London, dated 17th November, 1915: –
“P.S. – Two of my old mates called at the office to-day – Lieut Oliver Nickell (who is looking well, but was unfortunate enough to lose an arm) and Lieut Louis Cox, Yorkshire Regiment who was married last week, and is now returning to duty.”

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 18 Oct 1917 (p.15):
Dr Nickoll’s Sons
Mr Roger Nickoll, son of Dr Harvey Nickoll and Mrs Nickoll, of Perry-street, Mudgee, who has for some time been attending the aviation school at Richmond, where he has received his certificate as a flier, will shortly be leaving Australia with the others for England for further training preparatory to going to the front as members of the Royal Flying Corps.  Dr Nickoll’s eldest son, Lieutenant O. Nickoll, one of the first to volunteer, and who lost an arm on service, is still connected with the military forces in England.  Dr Nickoll has only two sons, who have thus shown their practical patriotism.

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 1 May 1919 (p.7):
Local Brevities
Mr Hayes, a smart young man, a returned soldier, has taken up a block of land on a soldiers’ settlement the other side of Coonabarabran, on the Gunnedah road.  Mr Hayes only quite recently returned from the fighting front, where he met many men from the Mudgee district.  Amongst these was Lieut Oliver Nickoll, son of Dr Harvey Nickoll, of Mudgee, who was one of the first men from the Mudgee district to enlist for service in the great war.  Mr Hayes was with Lieut Nickoll in the fighting in the course of which the lieutenant had his arm so badly shattered by an unlucky shot that it had subsequently to be amputated.  He speaks in glowing terms of Lieut Nickoll’s pluck, courage, and endurance, who notwithstanding that his arm was shattered all to pieces begged his commanding officer to allow him to continue in the action.  He says that Lieut Nickoll was greatly beloved by his fellow officers and by the men under him, and that nothing too much could be said in his praise as a courageous soldier and a gallant and capable officer.

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 5 Jun 1919 (p.13):
Captain J.O.H. Nickoll
Captain J.O.H. Nickoll, eldest son of Dr and Mrs Harvey Nickoll, arrived back in Mudgee on Monday, in company with his wife.  Captain Nickoll was wounded at Gallipoli after being in action for eight days, and had his left arm blown off.  He was then invalided to Malta, and after remaining there for three months he was sent in a hospital ship to London.  After a short leave in London, Captain Nickoll insisted upon doing work of some kind, so he was then engaged in embarkation work at Southampton.  He remained in Southampton for2 ½ years, and was then re-equipped and sent to A.I.F. headquarters in London, and put in charge of the Australian embarkation work.  In December, 1918, he got his leave, and was married to an English lady.  He came back to Australia per the s.s. Warwickshire.  Captain Nickoll’s brother, Lieutenant Roger Nickoll, of the R.A.F., is returning per the s.s. Nestor, which sailed on May 19.

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 17 Jul 1919 (p.10):
Local Brevities
Lieut Roger Nickoll, R.A.F., son of Dr and Mrs Harvey Nickoll, arrived home last week after two and a half years’ service with the Australian forces abroad.  He looks well, and expresses himself as glad to be back in Australia and Mudgee again.  His brother, Lieut Oliver Nickoll, whose active service had seen the war through (at the cost of an arm) returned some few weeks back.

1921 Mudgee LH Sports Committee:

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW), Thur 10 May 1923 (p.5):
We understand that Mr Oliver Nickoll, son of our esteemed local medico, is going to Tumut to manage a station for his father-in-law, who recently arrived from England.

The Kyogle Examiner (NSW), Fri 14 Jan 1929 (p.5):
Captain and Mrs J.O.H. Nickoll, of Killimicat Station, Tumut, are spending a holiday with Mr and Mrs J.P. Howard of South Kyogle.  Although handicapped by the loss of an arm in the Great War, which compels him to drive a modest Ford, the Captain covered a run of 750 miles in less than four days.

1932 New Guardsman’s Account:

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW), Tue 2 Nov 1965 (p.30):

Sorry but I don't record Jim Burke as an Aboriginal or is he so in his service file, while its possible when you read his file being dark complexion, brown eyes and black hair, while this in its self does not mean he was Aboriginal as this was on many AIF men's records.

I record him as;

BURKE   James Ernest   529   Pte   05 LHR   C Sqn Tos C Sqn 7-15 WIA 5-11-15 face, neck & R/hand bomb in Turk attack at Wilson's Lookout evac to hosp 11-15 (G) rtn C Sqn 1-16 to L/Cpl 1-16 to Cpl 5-16 to T/Sgt C Troop? (from fraser WIA) 9-16 to Sgt 10-16 to hosp (rheum) 7-17 to 2 LHTR 9-17 rtn C Sqn 11-17 MM  - reason not stated possibly with Lt Currie's or Lt Byrnes Troop at Amman 25-9-18 gazette No 119 dated 17-10-19 RTA 1914 leave

As to his MM, I have not found why it was given, but I believe he may have been in either Lt Byrnes Troop or Lt Currie's Troop with Troop Sgt Pat Kelly who gained a DCM in action outside Amman 25 Sept 1918. The story is in a number of books (5th LHR history & From Law to War) but Jim Burke fails to get a mention anywhere?

I have placed a long list of known aboriginal soldiers in the LH with some personal details, I have found over the years and that list has been reproduced by many others over the years on a number of sites?

If you need what I have please let me know?

Hello all,
My name is Michael Bell Indigenous Liaison Officer with the Australian War Memorial, I have just come across your website and would be interested in any servicemen of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders descent that you may have identified. I have carriage of the National list to identify and recognise the contribution and service of the men and women. Any assistance that you could provide would be invaluable.

I am told that approximately 15% of Military Medal recommendations do not appear on the Australian War Memorial Honours and Awards (Recommendations: First World War) online database. My man Burke appears to one of these guys, I have been to the Gazetteā€™s London and Australia with no luck, the book by Michael Maton Gallantry and distinguished service awards to the Australian Army during the First World War : the Military Medal, again with no luck.

I was hoping that this research may have  already have been done by someone in your association, such as  report based on records such as war diaries, routine orders and other material that will help identify when and where the Military Medal was gained and hopefully the reasons for the awards. This is my ultimate goal.

Details of soldier
James Ernest Burke 529 MM Aboriginal soldier 1st AIF 5th Light Horse Regiment, A and then C Squadron

If you can help, please contact me at your convenience.

Steve - re this couple - they actually married in Albany, WA on the 20/12/1914 (wife: Clara SAMPSON) - so after he enlisted, but before he sailed.
Sadly they divorced in 1920 - you can read the story here (including as to why she was O/S during the war):

Jacques remarried in 1921 to Isabel Emma MATTERS.

Which shows a letter which mentions his brother getting married in Egypt.

Any ideas?

Steve - I am so sorry - I totally missed seeing this until now!!

Thank you, I do already have Thomas N.W.B. Steele's brother in the database - but it's not William A.B. Steele - he was their cousin.

Thomas's brother was Arthur Beevor STEELE - they were both sons of Thomas Beevor STEELE and Louisa HOLE.
Arthur (Maj, 2nd LH) married Ellen Mary Kathleen (Nelly) LITTLEWOOD on the 25/4/1916 at Cairo (she was born in Egypt, but the daughter of an English Civil Servant)

William Alan Beevor STEELE was the son of Charles Beevor STEELE and Mary Frances TYMONS - and his father Charles was the brother of Thomas (Snr).
