George Bingham Nicholas Lawry was born in Talbot, VIC and was an Accountant by trade when he enlisted from Ballarat in the 3rd Australian Casualty Clearing Station on 6 January 1916 at the age of 25. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A7 Medic on 20 May 1916, and by the end of the year he was serving in France with the 3rd Australian Casualty Clearing Station. Aside from a brief period of illness and hospitalisation in late 1916, he came through the war unharmed. Shortly after the Armistice however, he was admitted to hospital suffering from influenza and experienced an extended period of hospital admissions and transfers. He eventually returned to Australia in August 1919.
