William Henry Causon was born in Berringa, VIC and was a Miner by trade when he enlisted in the 22nd Battalion, 6th Reinforcement on 16 July 1915 at the age of 27. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A38 Ulysses on 27 October 1915. Illness limited his deployment but in September 1916 he was posted, on permanent base duties, to the 1st Anzac Headquarters at Vignacourt in France. In February 1917 illness forced him to hospital and it was determined that he should return to Australia. He left England in April 1917 on the Barambah and reached Melbourne on June 9th. He was discharged in October 1917 æmedically unfit'.
