Posted Missing (BGS Chronicle December 1916)

"aged 26, 1902-1904. He went to Canada and was there from 1906 to 1911, went to Australia in 1912, and settled and married at Brisbane. Like his brother he joined the 25th Battalion of the Australian Imperial Force, and on the same day that his brother was killed, August 5th, he was posted missing and has not since been heard of. The sincerest sympathy will go out to their father who thus in one day was bereaved of his two sons gallantly fighting in the Somme."
