"Among the hundreds of recruits who left Melbourne
for Seymour yesterday was Mr J A [sic] Wheatley,
better known throughout the Commonwealth as 'Dad'
Wheatley, once the amateur champion cross-country
runner of Australia. Mr Wheatley represented Australia
at the Olympic games held at Athens several years ago.
His brother, Private Noel Wheatley, a promising black
and white artist, aged 20 years, was killed in action at
Gallipoli recently, and Mr G A Wheatley and another
brother, Horace have enlisted to avenge his death.
They are sons of Mr A E Wheatley, of Moonee Ponds,
formerly assistant registrar of titles."
