“Answered the Call – Enlistments – Public Schools Battalion.

A fine example of those attending to enlist in the Public Schools Battalion was set by Neville Fairbairn Armytage, 20, of Punt Road, South Yarra, who walked into the town hall recruiting depot this morning with his college colours flying and enlisted for service. This young recruit rowed with the Geelong Grammar crew in 1915-1916 and is a fine specimen of young Australian manhood. He described himself as a jackaroo on Mundiwa Station, Deniliquin.”
