Sergeant Leo James Harty, MM

Sergeant Leo James Harty of  Normanby Street, Moonee Ponds, survived the landing at Gallipoli and the battle of Lone Pine, but was probably killed in the bombardment at Messines in 1916.  Rod Martin tells his story here.   The photograph, by John Philpott, shows the Berks Cemetery Extension where Leo was buried.
