John Myers was born in Ballarat and was a Packer by trade when he enlisted in the 3rd Australian Casualty Clearing Station on 12 July 1915 at the age of 19. Due to his previous military experience with the 70th Infantry he was awarded the rank of Sergeant. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A7 Medic on 20 May 1916. He reached France towards the end of September but had not been there long before a bout of tonsillitis saw him hospitalised. He rejoined the 3rd ACCS and served through until the end of the war without major illness or injury. In early 1919 while awaiting his return to Australia, he was admitted to the 2nd Scottish General Hospital at Edinburgh once again suffering from tonsillitis. He returned home on the Chemnitz and disembarked at Melbourne on September 5th 1919.
