One of three brothers who enlisted, George was the only one to return to his home in Kensington. In this portrait he is seen wearing his Military Medal, Corporal's stripe and Mortar Battery badge.  Read Rod Martin's account of George Nelson and the 6th Light Trench Mortar Battery in action, and George's Military Medal won at Bullecourt in 1917.
