Henry Dalziel's Early Life
At home, Henry studied and looked for a full time job. He was a special apprentice fireman that worked in conjunction with Queensland Government Railways. He was known throughout his teenage years as 'Harry'
Henry and his brother, found tin samples as children, that started the boulder mine near Emuford, which was one of biggest mines in Australia.
He enlisted on the Nominal Roll on 22 January 1915, at the age of 23.
He enlisted in the hope of securing a full time job.
Henry lived a happy, healthy life before the war. In his time, the nobility suffered the most, every rich person was extremely judgemental and the poor were earning Australia the most money.
There were also violent disputes about society as most people expected young men to enlist. Society thought those who didnt go were not tough and therefore did not respect them.
However, those who did were heroes. Although enlistment was not compulsory, most people treated it as though it was.
He was sent to war 6 months after his enlistment. However, due to the young age of his battalion, they were sent to Egypt for training before heading to Gallipoli.
