From Russian Anzacs in Australian History:

But suspicions often had tragic outcomes. Nicholas Gulevich, an educated man and a good gunner, was invalided back to Australia in 1918 after suddenly developing traumatic neurasthenia. His medical history has only a brief reference to its possible causes, stating that he was well until April 1918 mistaken for spy very nervy.
