Robert Young Tweeddale was born in Ballarat, Victoria, was a widower and a Boilermaker when he enlisted with the 6th General (Victorian) Reinforcements on 28 March 1918 at the age of 33. His unit embarked from Sydney, New South Wales, on board HMAT A30 Borda on 17 July 1918. He marched in to the 1st Training Battalion to serve with the 6th Battalion reinforcements. Due tot the armistice being signed on 11 November 1918, essentially ending the conflict in Europe, Pte Tweeddale's service record is relatively brief; he completed his tour without major incident, illness or injury, returning home to Australia on 19 August 1919.
