New name - Stanley Livingstone Copley

A new name was added to the list today, 1975 Private Stanley Livingstone Copley of Plympton who served in France with the 1st Division Motor Transport Company. That brings the total to 33 South Australian Aboriginal soldiers with active service in the First World War.

  1. Hello,
    I'm a relative of Stanley Livingstone Copley (1975) and am unaware of him having any aboriginal heritage (not saying there isn't any but am interested to know if there is).
    Could you please post your references regarding this.
    As far as I go back his father was George Copley of Sussex England and his mother was Louisa Teakle a South Australian local.
    Thank you.
