Studio portrait of 3081 Private (Pte) Albert Edward Holland, 10th Battalion. A labourer from Millicent, South Australia, prior to enlistment, he embarked with the 10th Reinforcements from Adelaide on 14 September 1915 aboard HMAT Ballarat (A70) for Egypt. Pte Holland served in Gallipoli from late November 1915 until his unit was withdrawn to Egypt a month later. In late February 1916 he was transferred to the 50th Battalion which relocated to the Western Front, France, in early June 1916. Pte Holland was wounded in action near Albert, France on 14 August 1916, was evacuated to England for treatment and recuperation and did not re-join his unit until early October 1917. Pte Holland was wounded in action on the second occasion near Zonnebeke, Belgium, on 11 October 1917 and died of these wounds later that day. He has no known grave and he is commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, Belgium. He was aged 23 years.
