Pvt. Linsday Steer service number 2482 & 2482B, was born in Wolseley in eastern South Australia. View Lindsay Steer’s full service record here.. There is a poignant and well researched biography of Lindsay Steer written on the Australian Virtual War Memorial written by François Berthout. Because of this I will not do my normal research into Lindsay. Lest We Forget.
