Norman Leonard Boston.

Norman Boston was one of the first to attend the Victorian School of Forestry at Creswick in 1912 as nursery staff.

He was born in Daylesford and enlisted in the 59 Battalion AIF (#2578) in 1916, at a relatively senior age of 38 and 7 months.

He embarked on the Shropshire in September 1916 and served in France.

Norman returned to Australia in July 1919.

In 1928 he was listed in Victorian public service records as “staff foreman to assistant forester plantations” based at Macedon.

I believe Norman died in 1936.
