Informal outdoor portrait of 2780 Private (Pte) Claud William Bingley, 54th Battalion. A locomotive fireman from Darlington, New South Wales, he enlisted in April 1916. Two of his brothers had already enlisted. After a period of training in England he joined his unit in France in March 1917. The 54th Battalion participated in the advance following the German withdrawal to the Hindenburg Line, and on 15 May 1917, his first day in battle, he was killed in action. Records suggest that Pte Bingley was buried by his comrades, but that the location of his grave was lost in subsequent fighting. His name is recorded on the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial. He was 25 years old.
