Charles McGee was another who would not be considered a young man when he enlisted in September 1915. At this time he stated he was a 41 year old single labourer working at Avoca. He was initially allotted to the 13th reinforcements for the 12th Battalion and departed Australia in January 1916. In April 1916 he was taken on strength with the 4th Divisional Ammunition Column and in July transferred to the 10th Field Artillery Brigade as a gunner. His service record is unremarkable in that apart from two short hospital admissions and being given leave. He returned to Australia in February 1919.
Post war he returned to the Ross area where he had been born, working as a labourer. In his later years he moved to the Oatlands area where he had family. Charles died on 31 July 1942.
