Peter LONG #Depot

Indigenous Australian, Peter LONG, Depot Battalion.

He was allotted to the 6th Reinforcements for the 25th Infantry Battalion, and trained at Frasers Hill Camp, Enoggera.

Long was reported Absent With Out Leave in November 1915 and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was apparently working at Beaudesert and local police officers were instructed to locate him and place him under arrest.

Long was apprehended not long after the warrant had been issued and papers were filed for his discharge, “his services no longer required”.

His attestation papers are annotated “not likely to become an efficient soldier” and he was discharged from the Army in December 1915.
