Braim, Second Lieutenant Henry Stanley

Australian Flying Corps

Henry Braim was from Deniliquin, NSW, and was a 25 year-old Grazier when he enlisted as a Private in No 1 Sqn AFC in Melbourne on 26 January 1916, and was classified as a motor driver when he departed from Melbourne on HMAT A67Orsova on 16 March 1917 to join No 1 Sqn AFC on the Palestine Front. In June 1917 he was posted to No 3 School of Military Aeronautics at Abassia for initial aviation training, followed by flying training with No 58 Reserve Sqn RFC. He was commissioned in December 1917 after graduating as a pilot and returned to No 1 Sqn. In August 1918 he embarked on HMAT A18 Wiltshire for return to Australia as he was assessed as being permanently unfit for military duty due to neurasthenia caused by his war service. He arrived back in Melbourne in October and, after medical examinations, was discharged from the AFC in December.
He remained ill, and died at No 16 Australian General Hospital in Melbourne on 26 October 1920.
