William Charles Annesty World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of William Charles Annesty of the Garnish, Fortune Bay Ansteys, who signed up for active service in North Sydney in 1915 with the Canadian Expeditionary Force, then a few months later during the Actions of St Eloi Craters just south of Ypres he “was knocked down by a bursting shell and buried by it” suffering serious shell shock; defective vision; and almost complete memory loss.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at research@theansteystory.com.

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
