 13/93 Trooper Dermot Yarborough Lyster (Mac) Nolan – Lindenow Killed in Action 8 August 1915
….. presented with a horse by his fellow workers
Dr Nolan and his family moved to Bairnsdale district about 1893 when Dermot was about five years old. The children attended school at Lindenow for about ten years. At the outbreak of the war the family were all in New Zealand and Dermot enlisted with the main expeditionary force in the infantry. When presented with a horse by his fellow workers, he quickly transferred to the Auckland Mounted Rifles on 5 September 1914. He sailed from there on 23 September 1914. Once in Egypt, like others, he volunteered for the infantry again as horses were not suitable at the Dardanelles, and joined the front line. It is thought that he was in the same attack as Percy Enright who also enlisted in New Zealand as he too is remembered at the Chunuk Bair memorial. He was described as having a genial, kindly nature, that endeared him to all who knew him. He was 26 years old
The memorial archway of remembrance at Hokianga in New Zealand where Dermot Nolan’s name is recorded.
