Sutherland, Maurice (1871–1935)

Mr. Maurice Sutherland, who died in Brisbane early this week claimed to be the oldest member of the A.I.F. He was in his 82nd year.

Soon after war was declared Mr. Sutherland enlisted and he earned a splendid reputation at Gallipoli and later in Egypt and in France.

His object in enlisting was to prevent his only son from joining the A.I.F. However, when he found that his father had enlisted the son, though not of age, followed him to Gallipoli.
