ANZAC Day post - Alex Latto 1897 - 1 November 1917

John Alexander Anderson Latto was the fourth child and third son of my Great Great Grandfather David Latto and his second wife, Annie Valentine Latto.  Accordingly, he was an uncle to my grandfather Pat Nidd.  

Alex Latto was born in 1897, in Australia, served with the 110th Battalion in the Australian Infantry in WWI and was killed in action at Passchendaele, Belgium on 1 November 1917, aged just 20.
