    No need:

    AT REST
    WILLIAM EDWARD (BILLY) SING (DCM)
    Born Clermont Qld 2-3-1886 -- 19-5-1943
    Reg. No. 355 Australian Fifth Light Horse Regiment and later the 31st Infantry Batallion

    Son of JOHN SING (bn. SHANGHAI) and MARY ANN (nee PUGH bn. ENGLAND)
    AND MARRIED FOR A TIME TO ELIZABETH (STEWART) IN EDINBURGH 29-6-1917

    A man of all trades, Pte. Sing was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for
    conspicuous gallantry, the Belgian Croux De Guerre and mentioned often in despatches.
    Serving at Gallipoli and in France from 1915 - 1918, he became known as Australia's most
    effective marksman/sniper accounting for more than 158 of the opposing forces.

    His incredible accuracy contributed greatly to the preservation of the lives of these with
    whom he served during a war always remembered for centuries acts of valour and tragic courage.
