John,  You should be able to bring up his service history online on this site www.naa.gov.au

put his ful name into Record Search

I believe he was born in tasmania - if you need family details let me know

If you google his full name there are several sites that mention him

John,  Thanks for letting me know - hope the weather will be fine on Anzac Day for the March

John, would be interested in info you have found (and which brother). I'm a direct descendant of his oldest brother Christopher Sheedy. I'm travelling to France next year and hope to visit grave site of William Urban Sheedy.
