Old Wesley Collegians
World War I Service Enlistment Records

In August 1914, Australians commenced enlisting to fight for England and its allies against the Central Powers of Europe.

At that time, Wesley College, Melbourne, a Methodist school for boys was two years away from celebrating its 50 year anniversary with 4,725 students graduating since 1866. Approximately 1,100 would join the Australian, British and New Zealand military services; 157 of whom would die as a result of service whilst many others would be permanently injured and/or mentally affected.
