Robert "Bob" Self (1896-1968)
Bob and Jack shared an interest in cycling, and both worked as cycle mechanics in Hobart.
As a 19 year old, Bob enlisted in April 1915. He saw action at Gallipoli, but was evacuated with rheumatism when the winter hit hard. He recovered in time to move to the Western Front, and took part in the battles for Pozieres. A knee injury in 1916 saw him evacuated to England, but he returned to the Somme during April 1918.
After the war Bob resumed his work as a mechanic, and he pursued his love of cycling. Bob and Winifred Self had three children.
