George Drummond was born on 9 March 1896 at Mosgiel, the elder son of George William and Jane Brown (née Stewart) Drummond. His father died in 1900, leaving Jane with two little sons. George started at Mosgiel School, moving to Timaru Main in October 1903. Late in 1907 George and his brother Willie entered Gisborne Upper Central School and at the beginning of the 1908 school year Whatatutu School in the Gisborne district. In 1910 George was back at Timaru Main School. George was a carpenter living at home with his mother in Timaru when he enlisted, naming his mother as next-of-kin. What became of George after the war? His younger brother, William Stewart Drummond, also served in World War I.
