The youngest member of the Auckland Returned Soldiers’ Assn is a lad of about 16 ˝ years of age. He is a native of Australia and enlisted in the Australian forces about two years ago. He got as far as Egypt and after being over 18 months on active service, he was discharged on account of his youth. The boy, who looks about two years older than his years, has come to NZ with the object of enlisting in the Dominion force if possible. He was admitted as a member of the Returned Soldiers’ Assn this week.
