John Paakola from Uleaborg (Oulu) in Finland came to South Australia in 1914, most likely as a seaman.
Enlisting in the AIF in Port Pirie, he served with the 48th Battalion on the Western Front. In April 1917 he was wounded in the leg at the battle for Bullecourt and later repatriated to Australia with a diagnosis of deafness. In the 1930s his commander, D.G. Mitchell, mentioned his stamina in his memoirs.
After the war he stayed in South Australia, working as a labourer in Port Pirie, Broken Hill, Streaky Bay and Port Adelaide. He married an Australian woman, Charlotte Oborn, who had children from her previous marriage, and they had a large family.
Antoney Zook, a Russian born in Samarkand, in Central Asia, came to Australia in 1914 from the Russian Far East. He was a clerk by training, but found it difficult to obtain work in Australia.
He enlisted in the AIF in Townsville, two days after Boronow, and served with the 12th Battalion on the Western Front. He was wounded in February 1917 in the shoulder and hand. Recovering in London he was discharged and employed by the Russian Government Committee.
No documents were found about his life after the war.
