Clarence Moffett Cox was born in Ballarat but enlisted from Stratford on 21st July 1915. He was 25, unmarried, and a bank clerk. He was promoted to Corporal during his service. At Bullecourt on April 11th 1917 he was reported missing in action, but a Court of Enquiry in November deemed him to have been killed in action. æThis can only be explained by the general turmoil and confusion that reigns during an engagement making it impossible for notice to be taken of the individual. So many men must have fallen unnoticed and their bodies buried by the earth thrown up through subsequent shelling, or later by the enemy'. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Australian Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux.
