147 Frank Roper CLUETT

 

 147 Frank Roper CLUETT was aged 21, a marine blacksmith by trade from Abbotsford Sydney. He enlisted early and joined the engineers while his brother, Ernest, volunteered a few months later and was placed with the 1st Light Horse regiment.
Frank was very likely sniped and severely wounded, shot in the spine on the 30th April. He was dangerously ill for a considerable time and as soon as his condition had improved and was well enough to be relocated, he was subsequently returned to Australia………………………….Frank would spend the rest of his days in a wheel chair.

Frank also had to live with the loss of his older brother Ernest who was killed at Lone Pine, Gallipoli on the 7th August.
