George Wilson, a woolclasser from Essendon, was only 18½when he enlisted on 8 January 1917. Appointed to the Veterinary Corps, George embarked six months later with the mission of caring for the horsepower on which the army depended. After a period in the Australian Veterinary Hospital in Calais, George was posted to an artillery unit.
