Stirling Barnett

Barnett went ashore at ANZAC with Lieutenant Balfe of A Company, 6th Battalion. He advanced with a group of men from Shrapnel Gully until they were forced to take cover from Turkish machine-gun fire. Barnett was among those killed at this time. His brother served in the AIF for three years but died of illness before returning to Australia.
