Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of John and Sarah Hudson

    Three sons, brothers Thomas (40814), Walter Arthur Hudson (3/2528) and Fred Hudson (8/1513) served in WW1

    His son writes :'Father's paybook shows he was reduced back to Private rank on the 9th June (presumably 1915). As I recall the 'Aparima' struck heavy weather en route to Egypt, and as one of the few unaffected by sea-sickness, he was promoted to Corporal - he spent time with the horses who suffered dreadfully from the motion. The promotion was only temporary, and he shows no N.C.O. rank in his wedding photo.'

    He endured recurring malaria throughout his life. AWMM
