G McLennan

The National Archives of Australia holds a number of World War One service records for G McLennan, none of whom have an obvious connection to the Canungra district.

Gregory Grant McLennan, service number 3672, was a tanner, 19 years old when he enlisted in Brisbane on July 14, 1917, naming his mother, Mrs Mary Ann Sands of Prince Street, Paddington, Brisbane, as his next of kin. Private McLennan embarked for overseas service with the 10th reinforcements of the 52nd Battalion on October 31 and arrived in England on December 26, 1917. During training in England he was hospitalised from February to April 1918 with severe acne on his back and shoulders, which made it impossible for him to carry equipment. He boarded a ship for return to Australia in May and was discharged from the AIF on July 24, from the 6th AGH in Brisbane.

Garnet Cecil McLennan, service number 96, was born at Inverell and enlisted in Brisbane on February 1, 1916, aged 21. A labourer, he named his mother, Annie McLennan of Burringbar, New South Wales as his next of kin. Private McLennan, serving with the 41st Battalion, was killed in action in France on March 1, 1917.

George McLennan, service number 2347, was born at Warnambool in Victoria on July 8, 1894. A cabinet maker, he was 23 years old when he enlisted as a Private in the Australian Flying Corps in October, 1917, naming his mother, Annie McLennan, of Warnambool as his next of kin.
