7103 «i»Service Number: 372606 (VX3511) Australian Army.Enlisted on the 26 Oct 1939, Discharged 22 Sep 1945, Rank: Major. Awarded: WW2 Military Cross.«/i»
«i»The son of Sir Henry Gullett, one of the Australian official historians of the First World War, "Jo" Gullett was a Melbourne journalist when he enlisted in the second AIF in 1939. Educated at Oxford and the Sorbonne, he had inherited an old-fashioned sense of honour and duty. "We knew England's position was very serious and that we should help her as our fathers had done. It was the order of things."When Australian troops first went into action at Bardia, Libya, in January 1941, Gullett was there as an infantry sergeant. He was wounded in the taking of Post 11, which the Italians had stoutly defended, but rejoined his battalion in time to serve as an officer in the ill-fated Greek campaign. He later fought in New Guinea and was awarded the Military Cross for his "disregard of danger and [for] leadership".In 1944 Gullett was one of the few Australian soldiers sent to Europe to take part in the British D-Day operations. He was able to get an appointment with an infantry battalion. Soon afterwards he was made a company commander with The Royal Scots, and served with them during the further fighting until again wounded on 17 July. A staff job awaited him on his return to Australia.While others may have seen boredom and disruption in war service, Gullett found some "colour, music and a touch of glory in that life". His account of his experiences, Not as duty only (1976) is a classic of Australian war literature. His part in the fighting at Bardia is depicted in Ivor Hele's famous painting, 2/6th Battalion attack on Post 11 at Bardia.Gullett followed in his father's footsteps when he entered parliament in 1946; he was elected the Member for Henty. He became the Chief Government Whip (1950-55) in the Menzies' Liberal Government. He was Australian Ambassador to Greece (1965-68), before returning to farming at "Lambrigg" property, Tharwa, in the Australian Capital Territory.

«/i»Henry Baynton Somer Gullett became known as Jo, he once complained, because "there were so many of us in the family called Henry". When he died he was known to far more people by the nickname than by those with which he had been baptised.
The son of a Cabinet minister, he was one of the most quixotic of postwar Australian politicians, an ardent nationalist and Liberal Party whip who renounced politics rather than continue battling the disfavour of the then Prime Minister, Robert Menzies.
He was born in London, where his father then was a journalist, and later was the Member for Henty, Victoria, in the Federal Parliament. But, more than most politicians, Jo's background was Canberra. He was raised largely on Hill Station, and later was sent to Geelong Grammar. He was not, he admitted, a "battler" as a youth.
At 17, he alarmed his parents with the possibility that he might become a stockman on a Queensland cattle station. Instead he was packed off to the Sorbonne, then to Oxford, where he graduated. In 1939, a journalist, as his father had been, he enlisted in the second Australian Imperial Force weeks after World War II broke out. He began as a private and ended a major with a Military Cross.
In some respects his political career paralleled that of his father. The elder Gullett — later Sir Henry — had been elected to Parliament in 1925, gaining the ministry three years later and serving, with one break, until 1937. It was generally believed that he was relegated to the back benches mainly for his criticism of the low-key defence policies of the then Prime Minister, Joseph Lyons.
Sir Henry was killed on August 13, 1940. In March 1946, when the Independent who had held Henty for the interim resigned, Jo was elected to Parliament. Four years later he was Government Whip. In 1955, at the expiry of the 21st Parliament, he retired. In part the end of his parliamentary career was brought about by his strong advocacy of powerful Australian defence forces. In part it was his outspokenness. He later confessed that he found it difficult as Whip to rally support for Government policies about which he personally felt equivocal.
He gave loyal support in the House, but frequent outspoken criticism of Government policies in the party room. He stood well with backbench members of his party. His personal relations with the Prime Minister were cordial enough, but their political relationship was chilly. Finally the Minister for Defence, Sir Philip McBride, warned him to look for a career outside Parliament: he had no hope of preferment under Menzies.
Mr Gullett was not averse to leaving. He had bought Lambrigg, a house (now 104 years old) and 160ha station off the Tharwa Road, in 1946, and he returned to it and to farming. He spent a decade farming before being appointed Ambassador to Greece in 1965.
He returned in 1967 an outspoken supporter of "the colonels", who had seized power a year before in that country — largely because they represented the peasantry and other classes previously excluded from power.
In 1969 he was appointed the NSW Graziers' Association's liaison officer with the Government. Later still he was associated with the Country (now National) Party's headquarters in Canberra.
He is survived by three daughters and a son.

7107 «i»Sometimes name is given as James John & sometimes John James. James & Margaret moved from Stockton, NSW to Korumburra, Vic in 1915 after his father was killed in the Korumburra mine. James Snr was co-owner of the mine & his three sons & one daughter took over his share. They moved with 5 of their children who were born in NSW:Essie; Edwin; John, Clive & Raymond. They left 2 year old Thelma with her grandmother Esther in NSW. A seventh child, bertha was born one month before they arrived in Korumburra and four more were born after they arrived in Korumburra. James sold his share of the mine after his brother Bertram was killed and they purchased the grocers, bakery & general store next to the Kings Picture Theatre in the main street of Pakenham from Paddy O'Halloran on 27 July 1927. James supervised, ran the office, ordering and even built the delivery carts. Margaret ran both the shop & house. Son Clive was the baker. John, Ray & later Norm delivered goods, mail and papers to homes & farms in the district including Nar Nar Goon & Kooweerup. The girls also helped in the shop after school. The family excelled in all manner of sports with Ray (known as Cracker) playing football for North Melbourne, then coached the Packenham team for many years and they won quite a few premierships. The stand at the local Packenham football club was named in his honour. John, Ray & Clive helped to establish the local fire brigade. Norm also excelled in football and the family were also highly involved in the local tennis, cricket, basketball & netball teams and other activities. In all James and Margaret had 34 grandchildren & over sixty great grandchildren.«/i» JACKSON John James (I1866)

7129 «i»The Town of Kirkcudbright is finely situated on the estuary of the River Dee, and is the county town of the County or Stewartry of Kirkcudbright in South-West Scotland. Collectively with the County of Wigtown, the area was historically known as the Kingdom of Galloway, and now forms the western portion of the present-day local authority area Dumfries and Galloway. Kirkcudbright is first recorded with Royal Burgh status as far back as 1455, but may have had this distinction even earlier. Royal Burgh status gave the town authority to trade with ports outside of Scotland and reflected the security of its position, and importance of its fine sheltered harbour. The original town was built around the old High Street where many old town-houses still survive. With its castle, harbour and mote, it was protected on all sides by the tidal waters of the River Dee and has prospered over many centuries since.

7130 «i»There is no record of John's death in NSW BDM for 1974. It is therefore safe to assume that he died outside NSW. This is also supported by the length of time between his death & funeral.Tracey is mentioned in John's funeral notice. She is presumed to be his father as there is no mention of a wife, but only a father.«/i»
