Hans Bang was born 1897 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia to Johannes Nielsen Bang (c1858-1943) and Louisa Christofel Maria Italia Neilsen (1864-1931) and died 1972 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia of unspecified causes. He married Clara Anna Bertha Andersen (1897-1968) 16 July 1921 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Ancestors are from Denmark.

Hans Bang, son of Johannes Nelsen Bang (1858-1944) and Louisa Christofel Maria Italia Neilsen (1864-1931), was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on 7 November 1897; He married Clara Anna Bertha Andersen (1897-1968) on 16 July 1921.

Hans was a Sniper in World War I, and served in World War II. He was a very loving and liked Gentleman. His wife Clara born in Brisbane, Australia on 24 July 1897 was marvellous at fancy work and embroidery. Even though her father was born in Norway and worked his passage from Hamburg, Norway aboard the 'Reichstag' to Australia, the name Andersen is spelt the Danish Way. Apparently, his forebears went for a trip one time over the border into Norway from Denmark, and never returned!

Hans Bang died on 19 October 1972 and his wife Clara died 23 November 1968; she was waiting on the platform of the Railway Station for a train to visit her daughter's home, for a birthday party of Winifred's second son's 13th birthday. While waiting she turned to her husband, Hans Bang (1897-1972) and spoke, then fell to the ground.

The doctor said she would not have felt a thing. The cause of death was a blood clot in the heart; a clot of blood touched the valve of the heart; it was over in a second and a big shock for the whole family.

Arthur Allan Bang (1922-2004) married Patricia Helen Stickler (1932-1995) and Winifred Margaret Bang, born 13 February 1924, married John Summerville.
