Jack Hazlitt photo

World War I veteran, Born 1897, Melbourne Vic, Died 1993
Jack Hazlitt could be described as a "survivor's survivor". When war broke out in 1914, Jack lied about his age and enlisted in the Australian Infantry Forces. He survived the war, serving at Gallipoli and in France and Belgium. Jack Hazlitt was a daredevil, the archetypal Australian of a past era. His interview for Australian Biography in 1992 was his last. He died in 1993, aged 96.
