Ronald Malcolm Ross was born in Booligal, NSW, was single and a Labourer living in Ballarat when he enlisted in the 21st Battalion, 4th Reinforcement on 23 July 1915 at the age of 18. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A20 Hororata on 27 September 1915. In August 1916 he suffered a gunshot wound to the face and upper jaw, resulting in his immediate evacuation to the 3rd Auxiliary Hospital. He remained in hospital care until deemed fit enough to re-join his unit on 10 February 1917. In May he was appointed as Lance Corporal. Luckily he escaped further injury, returning to Australia from England and disembarking at Melbourne on 14 May 1919.
