From Falling stars: The story of Anzacs from Ukraine:
Age seemed to present no major obstacle to enlistment [in WWII], however: some of the men simply 'adjusted' their birthdates, and the authorities regularly failed to insist on documentary proof. [...] Isaac Chain shed almost a decade between 1878 and 1886.
