PTE. James Andrews – 25th Battalion
Born in 1890, James was one of eight boys and three girls. James managed his family’s farm with one of his younger brothers and was a member of the Ma Ma Creek rifle club. At age 25 he enlisted along with his youngest, and under aged, brother. He arrived in France as part of the British Expeditionary Force in the middle of the enormous Battle of the Somme. The battle lasted 5 months and claimed one million lives. James died August 5th while in this battle. Two of his brothers also lost their lives later on in the war. In 1919, Mrs Andrews, mother of the three boys, erected a monument in dedication to her three sons. The memorable statue still stands today and can be found at the Ma Ma Creek Cemetery.
