Felix was born around the 14 March 1874 on Killsashee Road (Street), Longford.
He married Elizabeth (Lizzie) before travelling to Australia, likely in England. They appear to have travelled initially in April 1903 from Liverpool to Cape Town, South Africa on the ship the SS Afric, before settling in Australia. Prior to the War, Felix was employed as a timber worker.
Felix first enlisted in 1915 and was later discharged. He reenlisted in 1917 and served in France, becoming wounded in action in April 1918, suffering what appeared to be a gun shot wound to the face. He recouperated for a number of months in Colchester, England. Felix returned with his unit to Australia in July 1919 after demobilisation.
