John Cartledge was born in Mount Clear and was a Battery Feeder by trade when he enlisted in the 14th Battalion, 13th Reinforcement on 15 July 1915 at the age of 18. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A64 Demosthenes on 29 December 1915. He was wounded in action on three separate occasions, once each in 1916, 1917 and 1918. Twice he suffered gunshot wounds and once he was gassed but he recovered each time. No doubt greatly relieved, he boarded the Devanha in early 1919 for the return voyage to Australia.
