Private Alfred Aspinall, who fell at Gallipoli

Private Alfred (Fred) Aspinall grew up in Kensington.  He had been a member of the Holy Trinity Church of England choir as a lad, and as a teenager developed an interest in physical culture and boxing.  He also attended drill with the 64th Infantry Battalion, CMF  at the drill hall in Victoria Street, Melbourne.  The photograph courtesy of Kim Phillips of Spirits of Gallipoli, shows Fred as a Senior Cadet.  Sheila Byard examines the record of Fred Aspinall who fell at the landing at Gallipoli.
