bullet  General Notes:

Herbert Frederick Cunliffe was born on 3 March 1896, the younger twin son and eighth child of Margaret and John Robert Cunliffe. He was always known as 'Fred'.

He attended the local school at Woollahra with his twin brother Jack. He was the less adventurous of the twins and not nearly as robust as Jack but nevertheless joined in all the mischief boys find.

He initially failed the medical to join the Australian Army in World War 1, but, as the war dragged on and the casualties grew, he was eventually accepted and sailed for England as a driver in the 5th Divisional Ammunition Column. The Australian troops were encamped on the Salisbury Plains in Wiltshire where meningitis raged through the camp. Fred died in the Lucknow Isolation Hospital in Tidworth, London, on the 26 January 1917 and was buried in the Tidworth Military Cemetery (Grave No 266.Sec.C) on 30 January 1917. He never fired a shot in anger.
