Biographical information

  • Son of William and Annie Eliza (nee Henry) Waters

    William and Annie's three sons all served in World War 1. They were Philip Henry Gerald Waters (b. 1892), Edwin William Waters (b. 1891), and Sydney Francis Waters (b.1895).

    Waters is listed on the embarkation roll as Stanley Francis Waters. Other evidence (Birth, Deaths and Marriges), suggests that his name was Sydney Francis Waters. It is unknown whether the embarkation information was a mistake, or perhaps he used the name 'Stanley' at the time.

    Only listed as Stanley on the Embarkation Nominal Roll. Regsitered as Stanley by BDM AWMM
