Need to review war diary and research source of name.
Review online indicates that George Edward Shelter was involved in a court martial while serving in the 4th Battalion. The 18th Battalion Nominal Roll (1915) does not make reference to this soldier. A test search of the 4th C.I.B. yielded no answer. The remarks indicate he was subject to charges under:
- Section 15(1a) – absent without leave section;
- Section 40 – acting to the prejudice of good order and military discipline;
- Section 12 – deserting or encouraging others to desert.
Does this mean he served with the 4th CIB and was removed from the document as a result of his court martial due to a conviction?
Yet he is listed as a casualty that that died of wounds per the card below. Same name, same religion, and same regimental number.
Died of Wounds at No. 2 Casualty Clearing Station.
