The group photograph that includes Bailey is titled and dated “No 2 Troop, A Squadron, A.C.H.; 16.5.02, Marino.” The 8th Battalion reinforcements departed by ship to South Africa within weeks of this date, but arrived just after the war finished, so did not see active service. They returned to Australia soon after. The 1936 obituary that you referenced states that the subject “Charles Albert Bailey” “came to this State (W.A.) in 1901” – that may be an error, only by one year (unless of course he returned to S.A. to enlist in the A.C.H. in 1902) but does raise a slight doubt that needs to be considered at least. Methinks that he probably went to W.A. from S.A. in late 1902, after his return from South Africa. “Bailey” (“Mess Orderly”) identified in the group photo’. If we can unearth a real-time descendant who has a photograph of their Charles Albert Bailey, that would be helpful in confirming identity. Submitted by Clarke Whitehand - 2012
