Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Examined in 1915 the medical report noted "gunshot wounds both legs", "sword wound above right eye and appendicitis scar."

    Discharged 1914 from combat service, he served Home service in Military Camp until passage to England as an indulgence passenger.

    Correspondence on his file indicates all of his military service with Imperial Forces before WW1 was falsified. Whilst he served with the Royal Army Medical Corps, his attested details are likely also incorrect.

    His service record includes a newspaper report from the Daily Mirror, dated 11 October 1918, "Posed as a doctor. Blacklin was sentenced to 6 months in prison for giving false information, wearing military ribbons without authority and of wearing a uniform so closely resembling naval uniform as to be calculated to deceive."

    Attested with surname as Aylmer-Blacklin. Recorded in New Zealand Military records and elsewhere with surname Blacklin. AWMM
