Among the latest Essendon boys to enlist is Allan C. Barton (son of Mr. C. H. T. Barton, Raleigh street, Essendon) who has joined the Reinforcements for 36th Heavy Artillery. He was formerly employed at the office of this paper.


ROLL OF HONOUR. (1917, November 22). The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter (Moonee Ponds, Vic. : 1914 - 1918), p. 3 Edition: Morning. Retrieved September 3, 2014, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article74604374


Allan Cameron Barton had actually signed up for the Permanent Military Forces, at Queenscliff, to serve with the Royal Australian Garrison Artillery.  A statement in his B4717 service record indicates agreement that he would serve with the 36 Heavy Artillery "when my turn comes".   He had already served four years with the Senior Cadets and two years with the Citizens Military Forces.


Barton does not appear in the Embarkation Roll for the 36 Heavy Artillery Bde, nor is he listed on the Nominal Roll as a departed and returned soldier.  His B4717 does not indicate any overseas service, so it would appear that he did not serve overseas, but served a Queenscliff.  He was struck off the strength of RAGA on 15 Jul 1919.
