Henry Alexander Moodie was born in Ballarat and was a Painter by trade when he enlisted in the 4th Light Horse Regiment, C Squadron on 18 August 1914 at the age of 19. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board Transport A18 Wiltshire on 19 October 1914. He underwent further training in Egypt before landing at Anzac in May 1915. He served at Gallipoli until pyrexia forced his evacuation to hospital at Mudros in mid-December, just a week before the general evacuation was completed. In January 1916 he returned to Alexandria in Egypt and served there until November 1917 when he was hospitalised by a lengthy bout of gastritis. He departed from Suez on July 12th to return to Australia on the Port Darwin.
