ANZACs of Interest: Major General Sir Bill Glasgow

+8 votes
72 views
Thomas William 'Bill' Glasgow rose to prominence during the First World War as commander of the 1st Australian Division on the Western Front and thus an ANZAC.  During this, his second war (had already served in the Boer War), he was  very highly decorated for his conspicuous service and leadership.  Following the war, he was elected as a Senator, representing Queensland. Notably, he served as Minister for Defence during which time the Royal Australian Air Force was modernised and expanded.  Throughout the Second World War, Sir Bill was appointed Australia's first High Commissioner to Canada.  There is no doubt that he exemplified the ANZAC spirit.

Good work Ken - there was a biography (book) published about him a few years ago - as I skimmed the flyleaf a month or so ago I wondered in passing if he had a Wikitree profile.. now I know the answer to that!
