Frev,

Thanks mate.

Here another one I am unsure of?

FIGUEIREDO   Ronald   764   Pte   12 LHR   1R tos A Sqn att DSqn/01 LHR 8-15 WIA 13-9-15 head & L/hand shot at No 1 Out Post evac to hosp 9-15 (G) RTA MU rheum relist 17R/04 LHR (2633) tos 4 LH Dtls UK 8-16 to 1 Trg Bn (4Bn) UK 9-16 tos ACo/4Bn 10-16 WIA 7-5-17 L/thigh shot at Bullecourt to AIF depots (3 com) UK 9-17 rtn 2-18 to L/Cpl 7-18 WIA 14-9-18 R/arm shrapnel reported shelled hit when LtCol Sasse was wounded at Hill 140 near Hasbecourt F&B RTA wounded AKA Ronald Figuerada (British 6Bn Liverpool Rifles TF)

His file shows he now has a wife as NOK

Mrs M. FIGUEIREDO

17 Moore St
Brighton

The problem is did he marry after his return from Gallipoli or did he marry in England?

That is the only record that shows he married?

One for your special touch

Mate,

"The Bega Budget (NSW), Wed 12 Apr 1916 (p.2):
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Private Thos. Rixon, writing to his uncle, Mr J.A. Underhill, from Heliopolis, says: “Most of our officers are young men, but Lieut W.

Beck was his Troop officer while he was in the Composite Australian Light Horse Regiment during late 1915 early 1916. I wrote some thing on this unit some where on this site, which may shead more light into there actions?

Steve - he didn't actually marry until 1920 in Victoria:

The Argus (Melb, Vic), Wed 11 Aug 1920 (p.1):
MARRIAGES
FIGUEIREDO-LOCHORE.-On the 26th June, at Holy Trinity Church of England, Hampton, by the Rev. H.F. Ramshaw, Ronald, fourth son of Mr and Mrs C Figueiredo, of Wallasey, England to Mary younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.B. Lochore, of Hampton. Present address 9 William street, North Brighton.
