Henry Sutton Burke was born in Haddon, VIC and was a Motor Driver by trade when he enlisted in the Mechanical Transport Reinforcements on 8 January 1917 at the age of 21. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A60 Aeneas on 30 October 1917. He reached England just after Christmas in 1917 and joined the Australian Army Service Corps as a driver. In July 1918 he was charged with æconduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline in that he was smoking a pipe in the presence of an officer' for which he was admonished. Shortly after this, in early September, he was deployed to France. He returned to Australia in December 1919, disembarking from the Nestor.
