From Russian Anzacs in Australian History:
Among the wounded here [Somme advance, August 1918] was Fedor Oossoff, originally from a village on the Volga River and a bricklayer in civilian life but here a driver in a machine-gun battalion. Although with severe wounds to his head, chest, an arm and both legs, he was one of the few 'lucky ones' who ended up being evacuated to London, where his newly wed wife was.
