They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest we forget. When the First World War started on 28 July 1914, John Oswald Clough (Jack) was quick to enlist in the army. He was sent to camp at Blackboy Hill outside Midland Junction and trained on No.4 gun. At the end of October, he embarked at Fremantle and left for Egypt. After some months training at Mena Camp outside Cairo, he joined thousands of other ANZACs in the landing at Gallipoli on April 25 and remained with his battery at the Dardanelles for the next eight months until the allies were withdrawn on December 19, 1915. Like many others, Jack was then sent to the Western Front with the 1st Australian Division fighting in Pozières, Ypres and Flers. He was injured for a third time in the Battle of the Somme in 1917 and awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. While recovering, he was commissioned and ended up a Lieutenant before returning to the front for most of 1918, when gunshot wounds to his arm and knee invalided him home. On his return, Jack formed a building company called Clough Brothers with his brother Bill in 1919.
