Private, 29th Battalion, Australian Infantry, A.I.F.

Killed in action on July 19, 1916 in Fleurbaix, Pas-de,Calais, France during the Attack of Fromelles.

Son of Michael and Mary Ogilive Brumm, of Macauley St., Albury, New South Wales. He was a pottery hand prior to joining the army on 9 November 1915; he departed from Melbourne aboard the HMAT Ascanius on 20 November, 1915.

After the war, his body could not be found, though he was commemorated on the VC Corner Australian Cemetery Memorial, Fromelles.

In 2008 the mass grave containing 250 British and Australian soldiers, including Pvt. Brumm, was discovered in nearby Pheasant Wood. Scientific testing eventually identified Pvt. Brumm's remains, along with those of 96 others.
