He returned to Australia and Gippsland where he grew up. He died in 1949 aged 62 years. His daughter-in-law later became interested in his service as a result of examining the contents of George's tin trunk where he kept all his records. George had kept a photographic record of his war service numbering about 1500 photographs. Many of these, among other material, formed the basis of an exhibition held at Queens Hall in the Victorian State Parliament Building in 1992. Item #107831
