James Hector Kilfoyle was born in Benalla, VIC and was a Fitter by trade when he enlisted from Ballarat in the 2nd Casualty Clearing Station on 9 July 1915 at the age of 18. His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A40 Ceramic on 23 November 1915 and sailed via Egypt to France where, in April, he was attached to the 2nd Casualty Clearing Station. It seems he survived the war without significant physical injury or illness, and he returned to Australia as a member of the nursing staff on the Soudan which reached Melbourne on September 26th 1919.
His brother, Archibald John Kilfoyle (Tree No 2362) also served.
