Gilbert Murray enlisted in August 1915, too late to see service on Gallipoli with the 26th Battalion. Gilbert was a 30 year old labourer living at Derby. The horrific action that the 12th Battalion saw at Pozieres I late July 1916 would explain why he was sent out of the line with shell shock. After a brief stint with the 51st Battalion, in late November he was transferred to the 12th Battalion where he remained until sent home in April 1919. The remainder of his service was largely without incident except one incidence of being charged with being absent from the billeting area. Post war he worked as a miner living at Derby. He died at Hobart on 1 March 1938 and was later buried at Carr Villa Memorial Park.
