    Notes 
    • Alick was educated at the local school. He excelled at sports and won many cups and medals for rowing, cricket and football. He used to ride a push bike from Adelaide to Victor Harbour for a day trip!
      He put his age forward 2 years to join the army when he was 16 (World War I) and served in the first 10th Battalion. He was left for dead on the battle field at Ypres but survived. he was invalided to England and when he recovered he returned to the front again. He came home in 1918.
      He bought land out at Meningie for sheep and crops. He was burnt out by picnickers and no insurance covered him. He bought a shop in Tailem Bend, South Australia (which he later gave to his sister Clara, her husband and family when they were in difficulties) and catered for social functions.
      He joined the railways, gained more education and rejoined the Army in WWII (second 10th Battalion). He was vaccinated with a dirty needle and spent a long spell in hospital, leaving with a duodenal ulcer. He was stationed in the Northern Territory and Queensland, prior to going to Japan.
      He used to race greyhounds and was a member of the I.O.O.F Lodge. He was a keen gardener and reader and loved children. He was a football, cricket and horse-racing enthusiast. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
