Born in 1883, John Charles Barrie grew up in Victoria. He joined Australia's militia in 1909, and remained an army man his entire life, retiring with the rank of colonel. An officer in the AIF from the start of World War I, Barrie was involved in the landing at Gallipoli, and later served at the Western Front. He was wounded twice during the war. Barrie died in 1957, survived by his wife and daughter. His memoirs have been made available by his granddaughter, Judy Osborne. Ross McMullin is a historian and biographer who has written extensively about the impact on Australia of its involvement in World War I. Dr McMullin's books include his biographies, the award-winning Pompey Elliott and Will Dyson: Australia's radical genius. His most recent book, Farewell, Dear People: biographies of Australia's lost generation, was awarded the Prime Minister's Prize for Australian History.
