Biographical Notes

Son of John Turnbull and Amelia (nee BROWN) HAYHURST. He enrolled and passed the examination on 12 August 1914, in a very lively and busy Drill Shed; he was not one of those rejected because they were over age or under age, insufficiently developed, had no experience, or were over weight (the regulation weight was 12 stone). Brothers Cedric Dudley HAYHURST and Gilbert Clarence HAYHURST also served in WWI.
