Stefan Morga, a Pole from Częstochowa, came to Sydney in 1915 and worked as a blacksmith.
He enlisted in the AIF in March 1917, but deserted a month later.
In 1922, as a result of a confrontation, he killed another Russian immigrant in Cairns, and was wounded himself, becoming blind. He was sentenced to hard labour for life, but was later released due to his blindness. In 1946 his vision returned and he worked in Wongaville Colliery in NSW.
Michael Prap, a Polish seaman from Warsaw, came to Port Pirie in South Australia in March 1917 and enlisted a few days later.
