Blackburn was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant in August 1914[edit]

This should surely read 1915? Rumiton (talk) 11:48, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

No comment received so I changed it. Rumiton (talk) 11:03, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, it should be 1915 for a number of reasons, and just to confirm our predjudices, ADB says:
" ... and was admitted as a legal practitioner in 1913. ... Blackburn enlisted as a private ... in October next year, [i.e. 1914], and landed at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. ... He was commissioned second lieutenant in August, and served throughout the Gallipoli campaign and in France in 1916."
