Charles George Compton
Born 1882 Worthing
Married Lilian Puttick ΒΌ June 1901 East Preston District

In 1911 with Lilian & 2 children at 47 Newland Road Worthing. Charles was a Bricklayer. Also an 18 month old Niece and a visitor.

Very Brave to emigrate with 2 small children. And like all Australian & NZ men who were all volunteers to come to UK to fight leaving his young family behind
