Private Ray King, brother of C.S. King, attached to the 20 Battalion, lost four toes and the sight of one eye through the explosion of a Turkish bomb, which fell at his feet during fighting on Walker’s ridge, Gallipoli. As a consequence of those injuries he returned to Australia and was engaged as a newsagent at Hornsby.
