Pre War

Married Idahlia G Criddle in the Irwin district during 1911.

Electoral Roll entries - 1916 night officer, GinGin.

Post Office Directory for 1914 has him as a guard, at Mingenew

War Service

It appears that in 1917 he attempted to join the AIF, but either did not go through with it, or was rejected on medical grounds. His early death might suggest he had health problems.

However, he is the only likely match for the name on the Mundijong Monument LINGTHORPE.

Post War

Wife Gertrude died 25 Nov 1933 aged 41. Electoral Roll entries - 1925 Coorow, Stationmaster; 1926- 35 Arrino, Stationmaster
