500 Private Lindsay Gordon McDonald - Bairnsdale Killed in Action 25 April 1915
….. in the second wave to come ashore
Archibald and Sarah McDonald moved to Bairnsdale about 1905 when Lindsay, one of nine children, was about 15 years old. Before he enlisted on 17 August, he was working at the North Melbourne rail carriage workshops. He was 21 years old and attached to D Company in the 7 th  Battalion and found himself with many other East Gippsland men. The 7 th  Battalion were the second wave to come ashore at 5.30am at North Beach and were met with machine gun fire from above. Lindsay was unaccounted for almost immediately. Sometime later a court of enquiry determined that he died at the landing. He is believed to be buried amongst those at No.2 Outpost Cemetery and is remembered on the Bairnsdale Shire honour roll.
