Ticknell Eric Russell



Born Ouse Tasmania to William Thomas and Mary Frances Ticknell, Eric was living at 44 Eardley Street Launceston when he enlisted and was posted to 2/7 Australian Infantry Battalion which was formed in Victoria in October 1939.  

The Battalion which carried the colour patch of Brown over Red or “Mud over Blood” saw service in the Western Desert, Greece and two campaigns in Papua and New Guinea and it was in New Guinea that Eric Russell Ticknell died of illness on the 12th November 1943.  It should be noted that he was “Mentioned in Despatches”  

He is buried in the Bomana War Cemetery .
