Biography

Ernest Stanley Bath was born in Ballarat and was a bootmaker by trade when he enlisted in the 8th Australian Army Service Corps (AASC) on 7 July 1915 at the age of 28. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A41 Bakara on 5 November 1915. By June 1916 he had joined the 5th Division Train in France as a driver. In October 1917 he suffered an accidental head injury which hospitalised him for a week, but it seems a Court of Enquiry cleared him of negligently or deliberately contributing to the injury. He returned home on the Kildonan Castle, reaching Melbourne on May 7th 1919.
