LONDON, Dec. MI (Correspondence of The Associated Press). A colonel of Australian infantry who was wounded in the Gallipoli campaign and sent back to Australia but who concealed his rank and reenlisted as a private to serve w*ith the Australians in France has added to the esteem in which Australians are bold in London. Colonel Charles j Melville Macnaghten, the hero of the story, is hailed as a man of gallantry and grit.
He was the son of Sir Melville Mac-uaghten, chief of the criminal investigation department of Scotland Yard, j says the I>aily Mail, and was practicing law in Australia when the war ; began. He was the major in command of the first brigade which land- J Ct! at Anzac Cove on Gallipoli pen in- i aula. Within two days he was ! wounded three times. Vfter recovery * In England he returned to Gallipoli and led his battalion in their immortal charge at Lone Pine.
After the evacuation of Gallipoli ! he served for a time in Egypt and was sent from there to England suffering from wounds and fever. Surgeons refused him permission to return to active service and he was sent to Australia as second in command of an Australian training camp.
One day he slipped away from the camp and joined a replacement bat-talion in Queensland under the name j of Charles Melville and soon afterward was back in England training j on Salisbury Plain as Private Melville. He was quickly promoted to be corporal and one day was asked by his commanding officer, ‘'Corporal, do you think you could drill this j company?*' Having commanded a brigade, tty* corporal put ti^e company through Its paces like the veteran he was.
Back in France again he was recognized by officers who had known him in Gallipoli as the daring and brilliant soldier they had called “fighting Mac.** General Birdwood. with whom he had served at Lone Pine, sent for him and gave him a commission. Not long af^Vards Colonel Macnaghten wa* again sent as an invalid to England where he was summoned to Buckingham Palace to receive from the King a decoration as a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George which had been conferred upon him several years before for his gallantry at Gal- j iipoli. While serving in the ranks In France as “Corporal Melville" he had been personally congratulated by the commanding general for valor at Messines Ridge.
Macnaghten’s fighting days are now over and he is compelled to recognize this fact for, as on© of his men put it, "he is riddled like a colander and it is only his fighting spirit which keeps him alive."
