Public Contributions:

William Mouton was the third of four sons of Polly and Daniel Mouton. Daniel abandoned the family in about 1895 and went to live in Perth, Western Australia, and served with the Australian forces during WW1. William signed up in June 1916, and spent much of his war service in hospital or convalescing. Two of his brothers also served, but survived. At the end of October 1918 William succumbed to illness and died at the Red Cross Hospital in Torquay, England.
