Herbert Fielding Tweedie was born in Ballarat and was a Clerk by trade when he enlisted in the Field Artillery Brigade, Reinforcement 27 as a Gunner on 1 February 1917 at the age of 26. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A15 Port Sydney on 9 November 1917. He came through the final months of the war without injury but, ironically, two weeks after the war ended he accidently dislocated his left elbow. He returned to Australia in January 1919.
