Biographical Notes

Frederick William Alley was the younger son of Henry John and Alice (née Preece) Alley. It appears that, after his mother's death in 1897, his father moved about quite a lot. Fred was educated at Oreti Plains, Winton and Clinton schools. He was working as a farm labourer in the Geraldine district when he enlisted. Fred married Elizabeth Gertrude Coates in 1930.
