honor role

Shipway, Valentine Frederick

22 Depot Drummer and Bugler.

Born Melbourne and enlisted 8 September 1915 as soon as he was 16. He gave his occupation as office worker and his next of kin his father, Albert Creed Shipway, Jarrad St, Cottesloe. In common with his brother Raymond, he may have been frustrated at not being sent overseas to the front and his record sheet notes matters of misbehaviour and his discharge on 20 October 1917. He did not qualify for any service medals. Ocean Beach (29) Troop Boy Scouts Honour Roll.
