George Rich



Activities of Union Soldiers

George Rich, son of Mr. and Mrs. Will Rich, who has been in service in the South Pacific, has been undergoing some sort of sickness which his parents believe may be malaria fever. He was serving in the New Guinea area but has been transferred back to the Australian mainland. His correspondence reveals he has not been feeling the best, is thin and pale, which is not one of his characteristics. George was of a husky stature and dark complexioned.
