    “Private V. L. Pitt, wounded, is 25 years of age, and was a member of the 5th A.I.R., now disbanded. He is a good rifle shot, and was one of the first to enlist. Prior to the outbreak of war, he was a trusted employe of Inglis,
    Smith and Co.. ship chandlers. He is the youngest son of Seymour Pitt, late Victoran Railways, and resided with his sister, Mrs. E. V. Fitcher, at 237 Princes-street, Port Melbourne, and not at Seymour, as
    previously stated in tihe official list”.
