Silent Heroes - 199 Sgt John Reilly

A couple of years ago I was shown a photocopy of a handwritten diary detailing some of the 1st World War experiences of a young man from Bega, NSW, John (Jack) Bernard Reilly. This diary is not in the collection of the Australian War Memorial at the time of writing. This is Jack's story.

Photo of Jack Reilly

Jack Reilly. This photo was probably taken in early 1915 while the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) was training in Egypt. It is the only known photograph of Jack from that time. In fact, this image has been reproduced from a photocopy.
