Originally from the northern Victorian town of Rushworth, Burge ended his studies at Melbourne High School where he was a member of their first XVIII football side.
Originally serving in the Pay Corps, Burge transferred to the Light House division and eventually the infantry. Burge was killed in action, aged 23, during fighting at Villers-Bretonneux, France. Having already survived the Gallipoli landings and a German gas attack over three years since enlisting, his death came just three months before the end of hostilities.
