16 Driver Marcus Adamson Clark

One of the youngest to volunteer was 19 year old 16 Marcus Adamson Clark, another  strapping young fellow from country Narandera. He was a blacksmith and farrier and at 5 ft 10” and 12 stone he was one of the youngest and fittest in the company. He also couldn’t wait to get on a horse and get to Sydney as quickly as possible to enlist as he enlisted on the 1st day and was assigned service number 16.

Marcus was also a skilled Horseman and was featured in the Sydney Mail in January 1916.
