Charles Bryant in World War I uniform 1914 to 1918
Charlie Bryant was born in Port Augusta on 20/2/1889. He enlisted in the army on 27/4/1916.
He was accepted as fit by the medical officer in Port Augusta, even though he was missing the thumb and index finger of his left hand, because he still had a good grip. After a year and 5 days of marching in England, though, Charlie reported unfit for duty. He was discharged because his left hand was useless for rifle use.
