Abstract:

On 28th June 1915, young James Martin sailed from Melbourne on the troopship Berrima-bound, ultimately, for Gallipoli. He was just fourteen years old. Soldier Boy is Jim's extraordinary story, the story of how a young and enthusiastic schoolboy became Australia's youngest Anzac. Four months after leaving his home country he would be numbered among the dead. His death, not in some glorious feat of battle, but from typhoid aboard a hospital ship, was all too typical of the tragedy of the Gallipoli campaign.
