Christie, Private Alfred David no.4068.

1st Machine Gun Battalion.

Enlisted 3/1/1916.

Returned to Australia 17/6/1918 Memorial Board, Methodist Church, Canterbury Road, Campsie.

No Australian War Memorial record at this name and service number. There is a Alfred David Christie in Victoria at service no. 4088 in both the National Archives and the Australian War Memorial which leads me to suspect the rest of this entry to be incorrect.
