    THEY WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN

    The soldiers listed below are some of the original members of "A" Company, 26th Battalion, 7th Brigade, 2nd Division, 1st AIF, WW1. Private Frank Gustaf Carlsson (No.618), a motor mechanic working for Bennett & Woods near Ballina, NSW, was one of the original soldiers in "A" Company and this list pays homage to those who served with him.

    To limit the scope of the list, I have defined originals as those who embarked on the Ascanius and remained with "A" Company when it landed at Gallipoli. However, there are exceptions to this, and you will discover who they are as you read through the list below.

    BACKGROUND

    Initially based at Fraser's Paddock, Enoggera, Brisbane, the unit travelled from Pinkenba, Brisbane, Queensland, to Polygon camp, Abbassia, Egypt via the troopship HMAT A11 Ascanius from 24 May 1915 to 30 June 1915, with stops at Sydney (28 May 1915 to 1 June 1915) where they encamped at Moore Park Showgrounds, Fremantle (9 June 1915) where they marched around the city for a few hours before returning to the ship, and Port Suez where they disembarked on 2 July 1915 after spending two days on the ship until a berth became free. The Battalion travelled to their final destination by an overnight train from Port Suez, Egypt to Abbassia, Egypt from 2 July 1915 to 3 July 1915.

    After about two months training in Egypt, the originals entrained from Polygon camp on 3 September 1915 to Alexandria, Egypt. They boarded the troopship HT Minnewaska on 4 September 1915 and sailed to Moudros, Greece. Arriving in Moudros on 7 September 1915, they stayed there until 11 September 1915 before embarking on the troopship SS Abbassieh.

    The unit probably disembarked at Embarkation pier, Gallipoli around 3am on 12 September 1915 and were "conducted to a valley", possibly Chailak Dere. 26th Battalion were initially held in reserve at Taylor's Hollow, a depression just below Bauchop's Hill (sometimes spelt as Beauchop. A hill just north of North Beach and No.2 and 3 Posts, about one mile from Ocean Beach).

    On 13 September 1915, the commanding officer of 26th Battalion received instructions that his men would do fatigue duty under the Engineer officers. Some of the work included: wharf lumping, pile driving, transporting water to the trenches, widening saps, digging trenches, creating latrines, unloading stores at the beach, laying tram lines, carrying messages, widening saps, mining, tunnelling and making roads. The work was undertaken mostly at night, to avoid enemy shells and snipers.

    Despite being in a quiet sector, the first of the originals to be killed from enemy fire were Private Harold McGuiness (No.125) and Private Patrick Morgan (No.666) on 20 September 1915 while on fatigue duty.

    Frank became seriously ill with enteric fever around 20 October 1915. He was transferred to various hospitals at Gallipoli, Malta and Heliopolis, before arriving back at Princes Pier in Port Melbourne on 13 March 1916 via the HMAT A71 Nestor, and then transferred by train to Brisbane's Kangaroo Point Hospital (the 6th Australian General Hospital) on 17 March 1916.

    He was allotted to the 19th reinforcements, 1st Battalion on 14 June 1916 in Sydney, but was discharged as medically unfit on 18 August 1916, four days before his unit was due to embark from Sydney.

    However, the war continued for some of the other originals...

    SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT "A" COMPANY:

    - The embarkation roll of 24 May 1915, a copy of which is held by the Australian War Memorial, contains many errors. One error relates to 22 men who were incorrectly recorded as having embarked onboard the Ascanius. I can provide a full list of the men upon request. Other errors include: incorrect enlistment dates for some of the originals, incorrect spellings of first and surnames.

    - Originals by place of birth: Queensland (70), England (43), New South Wales (32), Victoria (13), Scotland (12), Ireland (6), Russia (5), Tasmania (3), India (2), New Zealand (2), South Australia (2), Canada (1), South Africa (1), Wales (1).

    - The 5 originals who were born in Russia were: a) Private Coulkchoue Azieff (No.9) b) Private Thomas Habaeff (No.85) c) Private Andrew Jabinsky (No.95) d) Private Stephen Loosgic (No.109) 3) Private Joseph Rudezky (No.156).

    - Originals who were teachers prior to enlistment (note: all of them were killed in action during the war): a) John Victor Black (No.244) - head teacher of the Mt Leyshon and Muckadilla State Schools (both in Queensland) respectively, b) William Henry Cooling (No.254) - a teacher at the Fortitude Valley State School (Queensland), c) Thomas Cotgrave Hewitt - Science master at Toowoomba Grammar School (Queensland), d) Herbert Henry Park Hamilton (No.73) - on the teaching staff at the Technical College, Brisbane, Queensland, e) George Joseph Shepperd (No.589) - In 1915 he stated that he was in his third year of teaching, having worked at schools in Toowoomba and Roma.

    - There were five sets of brothers. Only four out of the ten would survive the war. a) Private Charles David Fellows (No.511) and Private Claude Jonathan Fellows (No.512), b) Private Douglas Roy Henderson (No.575) and Lance Corporal John Scott Henderson (No.580), c) Private Alexander Kemp (No.102) and Private John Kemp (No.56), d) Private Harry Edward Rickenberg (No.155) and Private Frank William Rickenberg (No.160), e) Private Harold Howard (No.79) and Private William Howard (No.81).

    - 4 originals were with the AN&MEF, on board the troopship Kanowna, during its attempt to capture New Guinea (September 1914) from the Germans: Alfred Henry Clegg, John Keane, James Leslie Saunders and William George Trix. The ship did not reach New Guinea due to the mutiny/strike by the firemen. They went on strike due to pay disputes.

    - Private James Bourke (No.16), 22 years old, was the first from "A" Company to die while travelling to Egypt. He died from septic meningitis in a Fremantle Hospital on 11th June 1915. James had enlisted on 8th April 1915 at Bundaberg, Queensland. He is buried at Fremantle cemetery, Western Australia (Roman Catholic area, MON CC gravesite 0630). The local Perth paper wrote: " The funeral cortege, headed by the firing party, which was drawn from the 6th reinforcements of the 16th Battalion of the Australian Imperial Forces, Blackboy Hill, under Sergeant Buckenara, moved from Messrs. Arthur E. Davies and Co.'s private mortuary in Market-street, on Saturday, and proceeded to the local Roman Catholic Cemetery where the remains were interred. The casket, draped with the Union Jack, was borne to the grave by a party of the above reinforcements. After the service, which was conducted by the Rev. Father John Smyth, O.M. I., three volleys were fired and the "Last Post" sounded."

    - Private Herbert Smerdon Hamilton (No.663) was born in Perth. His occupation before becoming a stowaway was a counter-hand. He was a 17 year old senior cadet (3 years with the 89th Battalion) who stowed away on HMAT A11 Ascanius from Fremantle, WA on 9 June 1915. The crew found him a few days after leaving port. When asked by the Officers why he stowed away, the lad said he wanted to join the war as well. The 26th Battalion enlisted him on 26 June 1915 and he was given the role of bugler in "A" Company. He was transferred to Brigade Headquarters on 13 August 1915 in Egypt and left for Gallipoli on 4 September 1915. Herbert rejoined the 26th Battalion on 13 March 1916. He was wounded once on 29 July 1918, receiving a gun shot wound to the shoulder. He survived the war and was discharged on 3 June 1919.

    - Private Patrick Morgan (No.666). An 18 year old farmer who was allotted to 7th reinforcements, 10th Light Horse Regiment upon enlistment (12 March 1915). He stowed away on the HMAT A11 Ascanius from Fremantle to join the war and was re-attested and taken on strength by the 26th Battalion on 26 June 1915 ("A" Company). He landed at Gallipoli on 12 September 1915. While on fatigue duty during 20 September, he was shot in the head and later died from his wounds. His death was mentioned in the 26th Battalion unit war diary (21 September 1915).

    - Apart from Private Patrick Morgan and Private Harold McGuiness, the other originals to die during the Gallipoli Campaign were: Private Edward Chamberlain (No.33, died from his wounds, 10 November 1915), Private Thomas Alfred Chaplin (No.615, died from sickness, 8 November 1915), Sergeant William Henry Cooling (No.253, died from wounds, 22 October 1915), Private Kevin Claude Dempsey (No.51, died from mine gas poisoning, 29 November 1915), Private Alexander Kemp (No.102, gun shot wound to the head, 23 September 1915).

    - 86 originals would either be killed, wounded or become sick during the Gallipoli campaign.

    - Private Edwin Forte (N0.610) was the first original to be awarded a war medal. He received the Military Medal "for exceptional energy and pluck as a bomb thrower at Russell Top", Gallipoli, end of November 1915.

    - Private Iain Ronald Nairne (No.529) was the first original to be killed in action on the Western Front. He died on 26 May 1916 from shrapnel wounds to the neck and head, received during 16 May 1916.

    - 4 members of the originals were involved in the trench raid of 6/7 June 1916, which was the first action by any Australian unit on the Western Front. They were dubbed the Black Anzacs. These were: Private Francis Albert Douglas (No.611), Private Roy Harry Greenwood (No.72), Private Roy Douglas Henderson (No.575), and Private Charles Wood (No.206). Lieutenant Francis Burleigh Caless also took part in the raid; however, he was in "B" Company in June 1916.

    - 18 members of the originals were killed during the Battle of Pozieres (28/29 July 1916), including two brothers: Private Douglas Roy Henderson (No.575, or Roy Douglas) and Lance Sergeant John Scott Henderson (No.580). Captain Thomas Cotgrove Hewitt also died during the battle, although he was in "B" Company at this stage. 14 other members were wounded and two became prisoners of war (Private Claude Jonathan Fellows (No.512) and Private Bertram Edward Hoult (No.88)). The losses incurred during the battle would prove to be the costliest on any one day during the war.

    - During the second charge of Pozieres (4/5 August 1916), 4 originals were killed in action, one died from wounds a day later, one was taken prisoner and 17 were wounded. Sergeant Francis Claud Lloyd (No.221), was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for: "conspicuous gallantry in action. After being wounded in both legs and head before reaching the assembly trench, he remained on duty and directed the launching of his wave before allowing his wounds to be attended to."

    - Originals to receive military medals during the war (earned when in "A" Company or with another unit):
    MILITARY CROSS: Francis Claud Lloyd (No.221), Cyril Cutcliffe Ward (No.211), George Albert Williams (No.64).
    DISTINGUISHED CONDUCT MEDAL: Charles Thomas Law (No.592), Francis Claud Lloyd (No.221), William Spencer Neal (No.82), Charles Frederick Pardoe (No.605).
    MILITARY MEDAL: Edwin Forte (No.610), William Edmund Harrison (No.86), Thomas Joseph Mackin (No.112), Luke O'Neill (No.593), William Raymond Sanders (No.148, with bar), George Joseph Shepperd (No.589), Arthur Single (No.189).
    MERITORIOUS SERVICE MEDAL: William Parsell George (No.68).

    - Of the originals who were in "A" Company on 12 September 1915, 60 would die during the war when serving with the 26th Battalion; only 51 would remain with the Company or the 26th Battalion when the war officially ended on 11 November 1918 (including 4 who were POWs: Private Charles Roy Bauer (No.590), Private Claude Jonathan Fellows (No.512), Private John Robert Hickling (No.76) and Private Bertram Edward Hoult (No.88)).

    - Private Patrick McCafferty (No.122), a labourer born in Pashore (India). Enlisted on 1 April 1915 in Brisbane. He lied about his age, stating he was 44 years and 8 months. He was actually 66 years. An ex-soldier, having fought with the 72nd Highlanders over a 14½ year span (Afghanistan, Egypt, South Africa), he had immigrated to Australia with his wife and children. He made it to Gallipoli, but had to leave the peninsula due to health issues. He was discharged on 11 April 1916. According to a newspaper article, he re-enlisted in Rockhampton and once again was sent to the front, where he was wounded but survived the war. He was reported dead, and was mourned by his family, then living in Paddington, Brisbane. His wife and son were walking along the street one day, when they, saw him coming towards them. He said he expected them to be at the station to meet him, and was astounded to learn he had been reported dead.

    - Private Herbert Foot (No.60): a labourer from Henstrige, Somerset, England who was living and working in Queensland. He lied about his age, stating he was 44 years and one month when he was actually 61 years. Before immigrating to Australia, he had served with the Royal Artillery for 12 years and fought in the Afghan campaign. He joined the AIF because he "hated the Germans." When he left Cairns on 29 March 1915 to commence training at Enoggera, Brisbane, he was given a "right royal send off by the band and the choir at the Cairns wharf", even though he was the only one to leave that day. While at Gallipoli, he suffered from various sicknesses and was in and out of hospital. He embarked for Australia on 3 March 1916 and was discharged as medically unfit on 12 April 1916.

    - Captain Percy Cherry. He was temporarily Captain of "A" Company from 9 December 1916 to early February 1917. He was awarded the Victoria Cross for his work during the Battle of Lagnicourt (26 March 1917). During the battle, he was tasked with taking his company ("C" Company) into the village and dealing with any Germans who may have been there. He was killed by shell fire around 4pm. Earlier that day around 10am, three originals surrendered and were taken prisoner by the Germans: Sergeant John Robert Hickling (No.76), Corporal Charles Roy Bauer (No.590) and Private Hans Henry Pedersen (No.142). They were in the No.2 outpost, about ¾ of a mile east of the village, providing protecting fire as their Company headed back to the village (the Company had successfully made its way north east of the village coming from the south, closing off the encirclement). Due to incessant rain, their lewis gun had jammed with mud. According to Charles Bean, Lieutenant Humphrys (in charge of the post. He had only been with "A" Company for about a week) "had sent back to ask if he should withdraw." Lieutenant Lloyd (in charge of "A" Company), told him to hold the post at all costs. The No.3 outpost machine gun, to the left of No.2 outpost, also became jammed, and this allowed the Germans to outflank Hickling's post. Being outnumbered ten to one and rather than being slaughtered, the surviving NCO (which was Hickling as Humphrys was killed by a bullet to the head during the German's flanking attack) decided to surrender, along with about seven soldiers. Also of note during the battle: Captain Cooper led "D" Company west and then north east to link up with "A" Company. Lieutenant Claude Augustine Stapleton of "B" Company led the attack south of the village and was used to "mop" up any Germans that were left.

    - Private Patrick Broughton (No.497). Born in Netley, Southampton, UK around 1893. Worked as an apprentice for a printing company for five and half years at Battersea, London. Left for Australia during 1914 and enlisted at Longreach on 14 January 1915. Served in the Gallipoli and Egypt campaigns. On 14 March 1916, he was admitted to the 3rd General Hospital in Cairo, Egypt with a defective right hand. This proved to be his ticket out of the army since he had his right thumb amputated. He was discharged as medically unfit on 16 August 1916 in Brisbane, Australia. Left Brisbane shortly after to work in the outback. "Mouth Organ Pat" did not return to Brisbane until November 1934, since "finding things quiet outback and reading of the intended visit of the Duke of Gloucester, casually made up his mind to walk into the capital city and join in the festivities." This was a 100 mile walk, and he travelled with his kelpie dog. Lieutenant-Colonel Francis Michael O'Donnell's (commanding officer of "A" Company during the Gallipoli campaign) son read an article in the Telegraph (Brisbane) about Patrick and brought it to the attention of his father. Patrick's photo was instantly recognised. The two met the following day and Francis provided Patrick with work for a day, since the latter was "flat broke". Patrick returned to Brisbane in 1949 and visited the offices of The Brisbane Telegraph, this time travelling to the city by train. He was on his way to Charleville. During April 1967, he applied for his Anzac Commemorative Medal.

    - Private Edmund Warrington (No.209). Born in Southport, England. Promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on 15/1/1918 and detached to the 7th Brigade Concert Party on 14/12/1917. Edmund had a hand in two movies: Diggers (1931) as an actor, and Diggers in Blighty (1933) as a writer.

    Percy Acrill ARTHUR.

    Enlisted 1st May 1915. Age at time of enlistment – 19. Address given as Era Street, Maryborough. Occupation shown as a blacksmith. Marital status – single. Religion shown as C of E. Departed from Brisbane on 24th May 1915 on HMAT Ascanius A11 as an original member of A Coy, 26th Bn. He was awarded the Military Medal (MM) for gallantry at Broodseinde Ridge in Belgium on 4th October 1917. Next of kin shown as his mother - Mrs Ellen B. Arthur, Tooley Street, Maryborough, Queensland. He returned to Australia on 28th March 1919. Other information located states that Percy was born in 1895 at Maryborough in the Wide Bay region of Queensland, the second eldest of eight children. Their father took a rifle into the bedroom of their home one evening in December 1912 while the family were having dinner and “blew his brains out” as the newspaper headline put it. Like his father, young Percy had been a blacksmith at the town’s biggest employer, Walkers Limited, ship builders and railway locomotive manufacturers. He served at Gallipoli from September to December 1915 and then on to the Western Front where he was wounded on four occasions – 5th August 1916 wounded in action at Pozieres on the Somme, gunshot wound to left forearm, left buttock. He was evacuated to England. 2nd March 1917 he was wounded in action at time of attack on Malt Trench near Warlencourt on the Somme sustaining a shell wound in his left calf and right heel. He was evacuated to England. Then on 12th June 1918 he was wounded in action during operations in the Morlancourt sector, on the northern banks of the river Somme. On 2nd September 1918 Percy was wounded in action during the attack on Mont St Quentin receiving a bomb wound to his left hand and invalided to England. His younger brother by two years, 257 Private George William Arthur, a baker from Maryborough, enlisted in Brisbane and served in the 42nd Battalion, embarking at Sydney on HMAT Borda A30 on 5th June 1916. He returned to Australia in September 1918 following a somewhat chequered two years of service on the Western Front culminating in a self-inflicted wound to the foot which saw him court martialled.

    SOLDIERS RETURN.
    THE 1915 MEN WELCOMED.
    Running 20 minutes late, a special train conveying 110 soldiers who answered the call of Empire in 1915, when men were urgently needed, passed through Toowoomba late yesterday afternoon, and they received a cordial welcome from a large number of those who have their interests at heart. The mayor (Alderman T. S. Burstow) despite his multifarious duties attaching to the influenza epidemic, was on the platform, and he personally conveyed to each returnee the best wishes of Toowoomba, and the citizens' thanks for the part they played in the struggle. Mrs. A. Mayes (president of the Red Cross Society), together with a number of noble ladies, distributed cigarettes and other delicacies. Lieutenant F. Courteney, of New South Wales, an Anzac himself, who spent four years and two weeks on active service, was in charge of the train. A number of Toowoomba and Downs soldiers were aboard, including the following.

    SERGEANT PERCY ARTHUR.
    Surrounded by a circle of friends, Sergeant Percy ("Snowy") Arthur, who went away with the original 26th Battalion, was warmly welcomed. He was wounded no fewer than five times, all in France at the battle of Pozieres, at Malt Trench, at Moriancourt, and Mont St. Quentin, and in another stunt on the West Front.

    Roy BARTLETT.

    Was born at Wardell in 1897, the son of Oliver and Elizabeth Louisa Bartlett (nee White). He was a butcher. He enlisted at Ballina on 24 March 1915 (his birthday) [he actually enlisted on 29 March 1915 per his war service record] aged 18. He trained at Fraser's Camp. He embarked on Ascanius on 24 May 1915 for Alexandria and served in Eygpt and Gallipoli where he remained until its evacuation. He left Alexandria after a couple of months for France where he served with his brother William Reuben Bartlett. He served in France from 21 March 1916 and spent time in hospital with heart disease. He was with the 26th Battalion and fought at Mouquet Farm with his brother. He was wounded on 20 May 1916 while fighting at Amiens and spent time in hospital. Five men were killed but Roy narrowly escaped and remained unconscious for over a week. He spent time in hospital again from 11 March 1918 with Bronchitis. He returned to Australia on Kashmir on 3 May 1919. He lived in Maroubra where he was a butcher and died of pneumonia on 5 September 1920 at the Coastal Hospital, Sydney. It's interesting that Roy's grandfather was involved in the Battle of Trafalgar and was on board Victory when Nelson was shot.

    THE LATE PRIVATE ROY BARTLETT.
    There will be many among the '' dinkum Diggers" of this State who will regret to hear of the passing of Private Roy Bartlett, late of the 26th Battalion, which much-to-be- regretted event took place at the Coast Hospital, Sydney, on September 5th, 16 months after his return to Queensland, and after four years active service in Egypt, Gallipoli, and France. The immediate cause of Private Bartlett's death was pneumonia, contracted while carrying on his trade as a butcher in conjunction with his brother-in law at Maroubra, near Sydney. The deceased was a splendid specimen of a young Australian. He enlisted on his 18th birthday, 24th March, 1915. After serving a month or two in Fraser's camp, his battalion was hurried on to Gallipoli, the transport leaving Brisbane on May 24th, 1915, and arriving at the Peninsula during the following July, after a short stay in Egypt. Bartlett remained on the Peninsula until the ever-memorable evacuation the following November. After a short stay on Lemnos Island, the troops, were taken back to Egypt, and while there he was surprised to meet his older brother William Reuben Bartlett, who had followed his example by enlisting, likewise in the 26th Battalion. Both brothers were then transferred to France, being among the first Australian troops to reach Marseilles. He passed through the various engagements with his battalion, and during the whole of the four years of active service had but two short breaks. The two brothers did not meet again until two days before the battle of Mouquet Farm, in which the two battalions participated, the 12th and 26th. A mutual arrangement was made on the eve of the battle that upon its termination each should make inquiries for the other, and if possible keep in touch with one another. They also arranged that if anything happened to the one, the one that was spared should look after the other's belongings, and send home particulars of what had happened. That was the last that was ever seen of William Bartlett by his brother. He was reported missing, but no trace of him was ever found. Private Boy Bartlett fought with his battalion in every engagement, and at the battle of Amiens he received serious injury through the explosion of an enemy shell. On this occasion no less than five men were killed. Bartlett narrowly escaped, and for over a week he remained unconscious, but then made a rapid recovery. Within a short space of time, he was again on active service in the lighter occupation of bringing up meals to the men in the fighting lines. While performing this particular service during a particularly severe attack by the enemy, he sought shelter in a shell hole, where was surprised to find a comrade seriously wounded. After rendering first aid, he succeeded in carrying the wounded man to the rear, and then, without delay, returned to his duties, from which he had not been missed. The Bartlett's above-mentioned were the sons of Mrs. George Bushell by her first husband, late of Ballina, and now of New Farm, Brisbane. Mrs. Bushell will be remembered by many as a vice-president of the Women's National Service League, and was one of the original promoters of that active movement, which had for its main object the sending forward of adequate reinforcements for the Australian forces at the front during the darkest and most perilous days of the war. The father of these two Australians served for years in the British Navy, and saw considerable active service, particularly in the historic engagement at Alexandria. Their grandfather and great grandfather also wore old man-o-wars' men. The former fought as a youth in the Battle of Trafalgar, 117 years ago. He was actually on board the Victory when Nelson was shot down during that nightly engagement. The two Bartletts surely were worthy sons of worthy sires.

    Mr. J. C. Bauer, "The Bangalow," Mary-Street, Toowoomba, has just received the following letter from his son, Roy, who is a prisoner of war. The letter is dated from Soltan, Z, 3007, December 20, 1917: —

    My Dear Mother and All,—Just a few lines to-day to let you know that I am all right. It is Christmas Day. We all went to church in the village this morning. Of course I could not understand the service, but it was a treat to be in a church after being without a service for so long. It is what they call a White Christmas over here. It has been frozen for the last week, and yesterday it began to snow. I have had regular sport in sliding on the ice; there are tons of it here. All the moors are frozen solid. I send all you dear people and friends the compliments of the season, and hope to have next Christmas dinner with you at home. I would like to write personally to everybody, but am only allowed two sheets of paper and four cards a month. I am getting your letters. Last mail I got your photos, and needless to say I was very pleased to get them. I received a Christmas parcel from the Red Cross; it was marked, sent by Miss Bauer. Thank you very much for it; you don't know what it feels like to get anything from home. How is old Will? I have not heard of him lately. You did not mention him in your last letter. You need not worry about me. We do not feel the cold too badly; we have a good fire to sit round. Best love to you all, and kind remembrances to friends. Your loving son. ROY BAUER

    P.S.—You will notice this letter is dated 20th. we date all our letters five days ahead.

    PRESENTATION IN TOOWOOMBA.
    TO BE CARRIED OUT ON TUESDAY WEEK.

    The 1914-15 star is presented to members of the A.l.F. who saw active service during those years. The medals for distribution among the Toowoomba and district soldiers who served in those far away days have been forwarded from Brisbane, and, by the command of his Excellency, the Governor General, will be distributed by Brigadier-General J.C. Robertson C.B., C.M.G, D.S.O, at the Town Hall on the night of Tuesday September 7. In connection with the distribution of the medal, which will probably take about an hour, there will be a programme of band music, presented by the Municipal Band. A collection will be made at the door towards the fund which is being raised for the relief of ex-Digger Drayton who broke both legs while working at Cecil Plains recently and whose wife and family are in exceedingly strained circumstances. The arrangements in connection with the distribution of medals were finalised at a meeting held in the Mayor's room at the Town Hall yesterday afternoon, when there were present: Brigadier General Robertson, (in the chair), Captain Kimber, Mr D. T. Weir (president of the Toowoomba sub-branch of the Returned Soldiers Imperial League), and the secretary of the League . (Mr.Bert Nicholls). It was arranged that the Returned Soldiers' League should look after all details, connected with the distribution, and it was announced that the City Council had kindly agreed to make the Town Hall available free of charge. The Mayor will preside at the function, and short addresses will probably be delivered by his Worship and Brigadier General Robertson. The list of members of the A.I.F. to whom the 1914-15 star will be distributed on Tuesday week is as follows—

    WOMAN KILLED; MAN DROWNED IN TANK IN DOUBLE TOOWOOMBA TRAGEDY
    An elderly woman was killed with an axe and her husband was found drowned in a nearby water tank in Toowoomba yesterday. The couple were Alice Maud Bauer (60) and Charles Roy Bauer (68), of 11 Mary Street. Both had been in ill-health for some time. Police believe that Bauer killed his wife and then drowned himself. Bauer, a retired carpenter, and his wife lived alone in an eight-roomed weatherboard house. Mrs Bauer’s body was found at 8.45 a.m. yesterday by her sister-in-law, Miss Alice Caroline Bauer, 72, who lives next door.
    CALLED DOCTOR
    The body, with a large wound in the forehead, was lying on a double bed in the front bedroom.
    Miss Bauer, called a Toowoomba doctor, who hurried to the house. He found a 20-foot ladder standing against a 2000-gallon up-right tank at the rear of the house. Climbing the ladder, he saw Bauer’s body in the tank. First police to arrive at the scene were Sergeant (First Class) H.P. Gerber, in charge of the investigation, and Sergeant (Second Class) J. O’Connor. Sergeant O’Connor holed the tank with an adze, draining most to the water on to the ground.
    OTHER RELATIVES
    With the assistance of an ambulance bearer, Sergeant Gerber and Detective Senior Constable Cupitt then extricated the body form the tank. Both bodies were in night attire. Bauer’s dressing gown was found at the foot of the ladder.
    Bauer was an old age war pensioner. He suffered from disabilities incurred in World War 1. He and his wife had lived in Mary Street for many years. Apart from Miss Bauer, two other relatives of the dead couple live in Brisbane.
    After Sergeant Gerber radioed the police station, a big team of police arrived at the scene of the tragedy. They included Sub-Inspector E.J. Fuller, Detective Senior Constables T. Scanlan, D. Cupitt, and M. Jackson, and Sergeant P. Duncan. A post mortem later in the day showed that Bauer had died of asphyxiation, due to drowning, and Mrs Bauer from head wounds.

    THE LATE SERGEANT VICTOR BLACK.
    Mrs. A. W. Black, head teacher of the Sunbury State School, received word on the 2nd instant from the Red Cross Information Bureau, of the death of her son, John Victor Black, who (previously reported missing) was killed in action by a bomb in the second charge at Posieres on August 5th, 1916. This fact is vouched for by Private G.Osbourne, Lance Corporal Joe Morris (bomber), and Lance-Corporal C.T. Strickland. The two first mentioned witnessed the death of Sergeant J.V. Black, whom Private Osbourne knew personally. J.V. Black enlisted from the Teachers College, Brisbane, in 1915, and went through the Gallipoli campaign. He was amongst the first troops, after the evacuation, to be sent to France. He never was one day absent from duty, and obtained promotion rapidly as at 22 years of age he was promoted Sergeant of Bombers, while at Armentieres on May 10th 1916. Previous to his enlistment he held the position of head teacher of the Mt. Leyshon and Muckadilla State Schools respectively.

    WAR DECORATIONS.
    MEDALS AND STARS.
    PRESENTATION AT GRAFTON.

    An interesting function took place at the Town Hall, Grafton, yesterday afternoon, when medals and 1914-15 stars were presented by Lieut. Colonel Board (of the headquarters staff, Brisbane), on behalf of the Commonwealth Government, to a number of returned soldiers who had enlisted from the Clarence River district. It was at first intended to hold the function inside the building and arrangements were made accordingly, but the attendance being much larger than the Council Chamber could accommodate, the presentation took place in the vestibule, the onlookers being assembled outside. The gathering included a number of returned soldiers in uniform, in addition to those to be honored the Boy Scouts and members of various bodies of war-workers and the general public.

    The Mayor, Ald. G. Morrison, opened the proceedings, and expressed great pleasure at seeing so many citizens present to do honor to the men who had risked their lives for King and country. It had been said on several occasions, he continued, that the people of Grafton took no interest in these matters, but the attendance on this occasion gave an emphatic answer to that. He thought that, if the function had been held in the evening, the number present would have been five or six times more, but as matters were, there was no option but to hold the function in the afternoon. He expressed pleasure in introducing Lieut.-Colonel Board. Lieut.-Colonel Board said he felt it a great honor to present, on behalf of the Commonwealth Government, stars and other decorations to men of the A.I.F. which they had won in the war. That should have been done by the Governor-General, but owing to his Excellency's inability to visit the districts he (the speaker) had to do it. Another way would have been to post the medals to the recipients, but that would have been a very tame way to honor the men for what they had done. He appreciated very highly the honor of handing over to his fellow-Diggers the decorations they had won. The 1914-15 stars were for services during the first 17 months of the campaign, and those who received them that day were those who had answered the call promptly. Some who did likewise unfortunately were wounded and invalided back; while others - were able; to see the campaign through to the armistice. The decorations were bestowed for : conspicuous acts of bravery on the field, and they were very well earned. At the same time many a good Digger had performed deeds just as worthy of recommendation, but because these were not witnessed by someone in authority no award was made. That was one of the fortunes of war, and the fact that a soldier had not been awarded a decoration should never be aliowed to detract from the value of the services he had rendered. On behalf of the Commonwealth Government he desired to thank the recipients of those awards for the services they had so nobly rendered, and expressed a hope that they would long be spared to wear them and continue to take a pride in the units in which they had earned them. The presentation followed. Lieutenant J. K. Williams, Area Officer, called the names of the men to whom medals or stars had been awarded, and the decorations were pinned on by Lieut.-Colonel Board, who, with a hearty hand-shake, congratulated each recipient while warm applause was bestowed by the group of interested spectators in front of the building. All the men entitled to receive awards were not present. In some cases the awards were received on their behalf by relatives, but a number remained over for presentation in some other way at a later date— most of these are for men belonging to the Lower Clarence district. Corporal Cooper; D.C.M., M.M. and bar, 39th Battalion, Nymboida, sent an apology for non-attendance, and intimated that Major C. W. Sabine would receive his star on his behalf. Sergt. H. Tidy, 45th Battalion, who had been awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre, was not present to receive his unique decoration. The decorations presented were as follows: —

    Pte. A. P. Boyd, 2nd M.G.B., Grafton

    At the conclusion of the presentation Lieut.-Colonel Board called for three cheers for the men who had been honored that day, and who gave their services so nobly in the A.I.F., and made such sacrifices for their King and country. The cheers were heartily given and the ceremony concluded with three cheers for the King.

    "Bankrupt Examined
    Failure of Motor Business
    Absence of rain and lack of capital were the principal factors which Walter Hawley Bridgland, who formerly carried on a motor business at Goomeri, attributed to his bankruptcy. His affairs came up for examination on Tuesday before the Registrar In Bankruptcy (Mr. J. D.Keen an). Mr. R. J. S. Barnett appeared for the Official Receiver. According to the statement of affairs the liabilities are unsecured creditors £1,616 and one secured creditor £500. The value of security is shown at £950. The assets are stated as follows: Property £292, debts due. to estate £332, doubtful debts £86, and bad debts £12. BANKRUPT'S EVIDENCE!. The bankrupt stated that a sequestration order was made against him on January 20 last on the petition of the Barnet Glass Rubber Company. He went to Goomeri in April, 1929 to a business which he had bought for £700. He paid £100 cash shortly after taking over, and the vendor accepted a bill of sale for the balance. Witness carried on until September, 1929, and the holder of the bill of sale resumed possession. Approximately £500 was owing at that time. After he had been In the business about a month he realised that he had made a bad deal. However, he had put his two other competitors out of business. Mr. Barnett: Apparently you put everyone out, yourself included, right until the end of May or June. The absence of rain then began to have a serious effect. He had sold seven or eight cars up to that time, and had a number of prospective purchasers, but they would not buy until the dry spell was broken. The rain did not come and, not having sufficient capital to carry on, witness was forced to give up. He considered that land which he had purchased In Adelaide for £120 had doubled In value. On this he still owed about £40. The examination was closed."

    "UNEXPECTED REUNION
    "Mouth organ" Pat
    and
    War-time Colonel
    "Mouth organ" Pat's long walk from Winton accompanied by his Kelpie, which was featured in yesterday's "Telegraph," has, with the aid of the publicity given to it, and the long arm of coincidence, reacted greatly to his benefit. Many sundowners and swaggies from outback reach Brisbane during the course of time, but it seldom happens that, through the columns of the Press, their story is authenticated and their identity established in such short time as has Patrick Broughton's. Mr. T. O'Donnell, a son of Colonel F.M. O'Donnell, reading "The Telegraph" last night had his attention forcibly drawn to the story by the fact that Broughton was a member of the 26th Battalion, of which Colonel O'Donnell was the C.O. on Gallipoli. Handing the paper to the Colonel, who was nearby, he asked him if he knew Broughton. Although nearly 20 years had elapsed since they fought together, and "Mouthorgan" Pat had adopted a chin growth, which he naively referred to as his crop of galvanised burr, Colonel O'Donnell readily recognised him, and with the true Digger spirit, got in touch with him and was able to secure him a day's work. It was further learnt from the Colonel that Broughton was conspicuous amongst many brave men on the Peninsula and reading between the lines, it is easy to gather that they were both associated in a little dust up with the Turks, in which both were blown up, but about which neither will tell their own part. Broughton has, through his little story in "The Telegraph" met many friends long forgotten, and is now a firm believer in "the power of the Press."

    DIDN'T WALK THIS TIME
    Patrick Broughton who walked from Winton to Brisbane to see the Duke of Gloucester in 1934, returned to the city today for the first time since. One of his first calls was at the "Brisbane Telegraph" office, to renew acquaintance with reporters who met him in 1934. Unfortunately, none of them was around, but Pat was happy talking to some other pressmen. When he first arrived in Brisbane 15 years ago, he was "flat broke." "I have got a few quid, now, though," he said, and offered a reporter a loan. Pat used to be known out west as "Mouth Organ Pat." He had a kelpie dog, which was his inseparable companion. The dog accompanied him on his long trek from Winton in 1934. It wore special pads Pat had made to protect its feet during the long journey. Photographs of Pat and his dog, which appeared in the "Telegraph" on November 1, 1934, show the "boots." "The dog is dead now," he said, "and I have given up playing the mouthorgan." Now that he has some money, earned as a rouseabout on various stations, Pat travels by train, instead of walking. "It's not bad either," he said. "I'm off to Charleville on Friday."

    "Alfred Henry Clegg was born on the 15 July 1894 the first son and eldest of 5 children born to Alfred Vincent Clegg and Prudence Rosina Norris, Alfred Henry 1894, Charles Richard 1896, Edward James 1899, George Frederick 1902 and Ethel May 1906. Prior to his service in the 26th Infantry Battalion, Alfred served in the Far North Queensland Kennedy Regiment, known as the Dirty 500. Members of the Dirty 500, including Alfred, landed on Thursday Island on 16 August 1914 from the troopship “Kanowna”, to take part in the capture of German New Guinea. An incident on board the “Kanowna” involving the firemen forced the immediate return of the troops to Townsville on 18 September 1914.

    FALLEN SOLDIERS,
    PRESENTATION OF MEMORIALS

    All the arrangements for the presentation of memorials to relatives of fallen soldiers at the School of Arts to-night have been completed, and a large gathering is anticipated. As has been previously mentioned, seats will be reserved for those who desire to have the memorials presented to them by the Mayoress, Mrs. C. O. Gough, to-night, and they are particularly requested to enter by the door on the right-hand side of the hall. They will from there be conducted to their appointed seats. Attention to this request will greatly add to convenience and be of material assistance to the Committee.

    The names of all fallen soldiers, of whom particulars have been supplied to the Hon. Secretary. Miss V. C. Voss, will be read out. In several instances these particulars have been sent in too late to enable the names to be included in the list and to have memorials prepared, and they will be made available later.

    A small dais has been erected on the door of the hall in front of the stage where the Mayoress will present the memorials to those coming forward as the names are called. Relatives who prefer to receive the memorials privately may obtain them from the Secretary after the meeting

    The Municipal Brass Band will escort the returned soldiers, from the Post Office to the School of Arts. The soldiers are asked to take seats on the stage. An interesting musical programme has been arranged, and addresses will be delivered by the Mayor (Alderman C. O.Gough) and the Rev. J. Walker. The Sailors' and Soldiers' Appreciation Committee, to whom the organisation of the function is due, has spared no pains to ensure success, and it is hoped that its efforts will be well supported by those interested and the general public. The following is the list of the fallen
    soldiers from the district, with the names of the nearest relatives:—

    Cook, Harold Owen (corporal), No. 30, 26th Battalion, 7th Brigade ; Mrs. Harold Owen Cook, care of Railway Department, Rockhampton.

    "THE LATE SERGEANT COOLING,
    A LETTER WRITTEN BEFORE HIS DEATH.
    Mrs. Cooling, mother of Sergeant W.Cooling, whose death was reported in a recent issue of the “Courier,” has received the following letter written from Gallipoli by the deceased soldier prior to his death:— “Our dug-outs are in the side of a hill. Each two or three men do their own cooking, and we are having the time of our lives. I cannot realise that we are at war; it is more like one of my old camping holidays, but I suppose our turn in the trenches will soon come. We have nothing to do all day, and at night we go out, from 7 till 11, digging a sap wide enough to let carts through. Some says there is hardly a shot fired; except for a few artillery shots one could not imagine one was anywhere near fighting. During the day we often go for a walk to the different parts of the firing line. It is quite safe, as there are trenches all the way. It would greatly surprise you to see the amount of trenches there are. There must be hundreds of miles of trenches, i have made a collection of badges from the different regiments with whom I have come in contact, and value them. I am going to try and send them home, but do not know it it will be possible. [Mrs Cooling has received the badges.] So far we have had two men killed and one wounded by stray bullets. We get very good food, including bread two or three times a week; jam, fresh meat, almost twice a week; bacon every day; rice, prunes, or raisins now and again; biscuits every day— large hard ones — tea, sugar, tinned milk, tinned meat when no fresh meat, onions, and dried vegetables; so you can see we don't fare too badly, I have received one letter since I have been here. In some places there are many killed just outside the trenches, and we cannot get out to bury them. Three days ago the Turks sent a jam tin into our trenches with this message on it: ‘If you are not off the Peninsula in three days we will blow you off.’ The three days are up, and we are still hue ind likely to stay. Our gun boats are doing great work; with their superior guns they can stand well out at sea and shell the Turkish trenches. It is great to see the Turks try to return the fire. All their shots fell short and drop in the hole It is generally thought over here that this part of the war will soon be over, as the Turks are very short of ammunition, and do not return the fire as much as formerly. We can go in for a swim, but it is getting too cold for that now. I am very short of paper; it would be a good idea if you sent an extra sheet every time you write, also an envelope. I am glad to hear Ralph has been accepted and would to know his address. Tell him I wish him all sorts of good luck. I have not taken to smoking although four packets of cigarettes a week, are issued to us.”

    VALLEY STATE SCHOOL.
    Planting Memorial Trees.
    In the grounds attached to the Boys' School, Fortitude Valley, the Arbor day ceremony was held on Friday afternoon, in the presence of the pupils and their teachers. a young Queensland banyan was planted by Master J. Flood, a pupil selected from the 4th class, in memory of the late Hon. B. Bowman. At the end of the row, and nearest Leichhardt street, a Queensland kauri pine was planted by a lad from the highest class, in memory of. the brave Anzacs. Within 30 feet of this corner tree, and forming a right angle with it, were planted a flame tree in memory of Sergeant Herbert Fowles, and a tulip wood, in memory of Sergeant W. H. Cooling, both of whom had been teachers at the school as well as Anzacs. One of these brave lads had stored up a large collection of marbles, stamps &c. and often said to his mother, "These will do for my kiddies when I have a home of my own " ; alas, at his parent's request, these things have been distributed amongst the kiddies of the class he last taught. Other trees planted, making eight for the day, were Indian cedar, pecan nut, pepper tree, and Moreton Bay chestnut, the last in remembrance of Gallipoli. The total now in the playground is 27. The remainder of the afternoon was spent in sport and games ; 25 handicaps were run off, and 50 prizes distributed. Keen Rugby football matches followed, and were hotly contested. Shortly after 4 o'clock the ground was deserted, but both pupils and teachers had been heard to remark that they had had an enjoyable time, and that Arbor Day this year was of more importance, and had given more pleasure, than those, of previous years.

    Edward Harold Denning.

    A large number of people assembled on the platform at Lowood railway station (writes our correspondent) to welcome home an invalided soldier, Private E. H. Denning. He was accompanied by his mother. The senior State school children, under the guidance of Mr. W. H. Chappell (head teacher), Miss Mulcare (assistant teacher), and Misses K. Mulcare, E. Walters, and L. Forster, rendered a song, and all present sang the 'National Anthem.' Hearty cheers wore given for Private Denning, who was then entertained to tea with members of his family, in Mrs. Kerr's hall by the ladies' committee of the Lowood branch of the Red Cross Society. The Rev. W. C. Kleindienst, of the Lowood Methodist Church, presided. He eulogised Private Denning for having so nobly done hisduty, and accorded him a hearty welcome home to his parents, brothers, and sisters in Lowood. Private Denning has been on active service in Gallipoli, France, and Belgium, and was badly wounded twice.

    DEATH OF WOOL PACKER REMAINS A MYSTERY
    The death of a 68-years-old wool packer who was found lying injured in St. Paul's Terrace just before midnight on August 7 will remain a mystery. Police witnesses told the City Coroner (Mr. L. H. Roles) today that they did not know how the man received his fatal injuries, but said there were no suspicious circumstances. The Coroner held an inquiry into the death of the wool packer, Francis Albert Douglas, of Tudd Street, Valley, which occurred at the Brisbane Hospital on August 9, from a fractured skull and injury to the brain. Constable P. G. Crandy said that when he arrested Douglas for drunkenness at 11.20 p.m. on August 7, Douglas had abrasions on the face and the back of the head. Crandy said he did not use force in arresting Douglas. When he asked him if he was all right, Douglas said, "Too much wine." The watchhouse-keeper Sergeant L. McErlean, said Douglas was very drunk when admitted to a padded cell. He did not appear to require treatment for his injuries. He was discharged at 5.50 next morning, and died in hospital the following day.
    "Nothing known"
    Detective Sergeant T. P. Donovan, who investigated Douglas's death, said Douglas drank with a friend and then an unknown man in Prince Consort Hotel until the hotel closed at 9 p.m. Nothing was known of his movements until he was found lying on the footpath in St. Paul's Terrace. Donovan said the injuries could have been caused by a fall. There was nothing to suggest violence, or that he had been involved in a road accident or brawl. Mr. Roles said he found no evidence that Douglas met with foul play or assault. "The only reasonable conclusion is that he fell over in the street." he said. Mr. Roles found that there was no neglect by the police and that his treatment at the watchhouse was commensurate with his condition when charged. Sergeant; P. R. O'Farrell assisted the Coroner.

    Returned Soldiers,
    Welcome Last Night.
    Mr. Theodore's Speech.
    The brilliance of the Australians' achievements at Gallipoli is as fresh in the public mind as it was nearly a year ago. This was manifested last night by the large crowds who attended the Central station to give welcome to a further contingent of 59 returned soldiers. Cheer after cheer went up, and there were similar demonstrations when the men were driven through the streets to the hospital at Kangaroo Point. They had a pleasant sea voyage, and they stated that kindness had been showered on them ever since they touched Australian soil. Captain Irvine, and a number of members of the Voluntary Aid Department of the Red Cross Society, journeyed over with the men from Sydney, whilst members of the Ipswich branch of the Red Cross Society joined the train at Ipswich with refreshments, &c. Sisters lsambert and Nott came from Egypt, and their services were spoken of in warm terms of appreciation by the soldiers. Practically all the men have returned on account of sickness. Those present at the station included the Acting Premier (Hon. E. G. Theodore), Mr. M. J. Kirwan, M.L.A., the Mayor of Brisbane (Aid. J. W. Hetherington), the Mayor of South Brisbane (Aid. J. E. Hilton), Brigadier-General Lee, Colonel McIntosh, P.M.O., Major Pendlebury, .Lieutenant-colonel Marks, M.L.C. (in charge of the 6th Australian General Hospital), Major Darey, Captain Jackson, Captain Tiddy, Captain Benjamin, Captain Buttner, Lieutenant Collin, and Lieutenant Marcus. The band was drawn from the 41st Battalion, C and D companies, of which provided the guard in charge of Captain Christoe and Mr T. J, Rothwell represented the Queensland patriotic fund committee. The Acting premier welcomed the soldiers in the following words: "I am here on behalf of the Queensland Government, to offer you a hearty welcome back to Queensland. Your fellow Queenslanders feel proud, of the way you acquitted yourselves over on the other side. The deeds you performed there have inscribed for Australia an immortal place on the roll of fame. Your compatriots feel proud of the deeds you have done. In the few months during which Australia has taken part in this great struggle that is going on now, it has accomplished more to establish itself in the history of the world, to provide for itself a place among the nations of the world, than all its previous history accomplished. You have contributed largely to that end. We heartily welcome you hack to Queensland. I hope you will soon recover from your illness and wounds, and will be long spared to bask in the repose which you have earned for yourselves." The Mayor also voiced a hearty welcome. Hearty cheers then were given for the men, who were allowed a brief period with their relatives and friends. They subsequently were driven to the hospital, and, as stated above, they made a triumphant progress through the streets. The following is the corrected list of the returned :

    60 Pte. H. Foot, 26th Battalion.

    Herbert Foot.

    There recently returned to Cairns Private Herbert Foot, a soldier who was invalided home some time ago, and who has received his discharge after taking part in the Gallipoli campaign with the Australians. Private Foot has seen 12 years' service with the Imperial army, having fought in the Afghan war, and been in India. He enlisted in Cairns at the end of March last year, and is now 62 years of age. Private Foot came to Australia from India in 1888, and was a ship-mate with Acting Sergeant Murphy, the well-known keeper of the Cairns gaol. When chatting with Private Foot on Tuesday morning, a "Post" representative naturally asked him how he managed to get into the Australian army, being well over the age limit. "I told them I was 45," replied the old soldier, "and I think it was a justifyable falsehood, because I had had previous service, and I wanted to take a hand in this fight. I joined the Australian army because I hated the Germans. Is it not natural to thing that Englishmen, as I am, should hate the Huns? I was the only recruit to leave Cairns on Saturday, March 29th last year, and I had a right royal send-off by the band and the choir at the Cairns wharf. I went to Enoggera and joined the ---- battalion. From there we went to Egypt, and after some training went to Anzac. We had a good time there under the hills for three or four days. It was also a lively time, as Beachy Bill would shake us up now and again. We had to get in our dug-outs quick and lively, I was with a party digging saps for nearly six months. We went to Lone Pine and Walker's Ridge. It was nothing but fighting all the time." Private Foot was on the peninsular right up to the evacuation, and after that went to Egypt, where he became ill with dysentery, and was subsequently invalided home. He speaks in glowing terms of the fighting qualities of the Australians. "You simply cannot hold them back," he remarked with pride. If you say anything to them they will shout out, 'Come-on, let's get at them.' They knew no fear and charge like lightning. The Turk is a fair fighter. We did not mind him. He was led by German officers, but these gentlemen watched things carefully so that they could save their skins or evade capture." The cheerfulness of the Australians, when wounded, was also remarked on by Private Foot. "I saw a bomb strike one man," he said, "and put over 30 bullets in his side. A stretcher bearer came along, but the wounded man wanted to walk to the doctor, and he did too, He afterwards walked to the base hospital, where he was operated on. I would also like to say that the hospital arrangements over there were simply perfect. The sisters of the Red Corss are angels, and cannot do enough for you."

    Private Foot is anxious to get back to the firing line again, but his age prevents that. "We are going to win," he added, and knock the Germans right out. What a splendid fight our Australians are putting up in France? As I said before, you cannot hold them back." The returned soldier made some scathing remarks about young eligible men who would not volunteer to help their comrades in the firing line. If there had been sufficient men at Gallipoli, Constantinople would have fallen long ago. When he was recently in Brisbane he daily saw a number of lounging louts who were holding up verandah posts. These men should be at the front. There were also shirkers, whose sole occupation in life seemed to be "two-up." They should be taught their duty to their country, and to those who were away yonder in France risking their lives for the cause of liberty. Continuing, Private Foot said that when the soldiers on active service read of strikes in Australia, it had a maddening effect on them. They could not understand why the comrades they had left behind should indulge in industrial disputes while they were fighting with rifle and bayonet to prevent any invasion of Australia by the hated Hun. In the opinion of the returned soldier, conscription was the remedy to obtain adequate reinforcements for the men who had gone. When our solders left here they were told they would have all possible support, yet all over Australia to-day were to be seen young men who never gave the welfare of the soldiers a thought, and apparently did not care so long as they themselves were far from the sound of hostile guns. Private Foot has secured employment at Babinda, for which place he left on Tuesday afternoon. He is an example to many who have not yet considered the all important question of whether they should go to the front. When an old soldier, who has more than 60 years behind him, shoulders a gun and endures what he did for the sake of the Empire he loves, surely it shames those who are younger, and so far have shirked their responsibilities. It is hoped at the next recruiting meeting in Cairns that Private Foot will be among the speakers.

    A BRISBANE LAGROSSEUR.
    WOUNDED BUT CHEERFUL.
    A letter from Sergeant J. A. Forbes, who was well known in lacrosse circles as captain of the Yeronga Club, has been received by Mr. S. C. Whittred, of the Central Traffic Manager's Office, Queensland Railways. Sergeant Forbes was recently reported in the "Courier" to be dangerously wounded. Extracts from the letter are as follows :-"'I reckon you sometimes wonder how one of the pals of your lacrosse days is getting on at the Front. Well, I got on pretty well, excepting for a cold snap with frost and snow, until the morning of December 4, when I had the misfortune to get hit with a bomb on the knee. That's over nine weeks ago, and I'm still on the broad of my back, with innumerable holes in my knee, Into which rubber tubes are inserted for drainage purposes, until the knee, with these tubes protruding, looks like a man of war with her guns out. At first I thought it rather a simple wound, but it turned out otherwise, as I've been on the operating 'block' five times, and am rather lucky that I didn't have my leg amputated. It will probably be another five or six weeks before I can get out of bed, then I hone, after a month or so on the convalescent list, to be sent back to Australia, as the doctors tell me I will not be fit for active service again, and will probably have a stiff leg all my life. So, somewhere in May or June, you ought to see me limping about Brisbane looking up old friends. The doctor, after thoroughly overhauling me, pronounced me sound and fit but for the knee."

    A SOLDIER'S THANKS.
    Mrs Gillespie, of Rose Bank, Kyneton, has received the following interesting letter: "From a Queenslander who served at Gallipoli to a Matron of Victoria.—Greetings, and very sincere thanks for your kindly letter and gift. Though 'tis long after Christmas, your gift has just been delivered, and though the recipient is not a Victorian, yet he feels sure that you will not greatly mind that a native of the Northern State has been so lucky. It is to our women that we that have tried to do our bit are thankful, and we appreciate whole-heartedly the grand efforts that they have made to wards our material comfort. The writer is one of those who will shortly return to Australia, unfit for further service, and will carry a stiff leg through life as the result of a bomb wound in the knee, met with early in December, and not patched up properly yet; but he's not a bit downhearted, and, with kindest regards, remain gratefully yours, J. Alex. Forbes, Sergt., A Co., 26th Batt., 17th Military Hospital, Alexandra, Egypt, 1/4/16."

    Invalided Soldiers' Return.
    RECEPTION IN IPSWICH.
    About 44 invalided soldiers passed Ipswich by the Sydney mail last night on their return from the front. The men were accorded the usual hearty welcome, the Mayor (Ald. T. J. Smith) being present to give them official greeting. Ald. I. Ham was also among those present, and Mr. T. J. Barber represented the Ipswich Navy and Army Veterans' Association. In addition, a number of local residents were on the platform. The returned men were all particularly cheerful, and in the few minutes at their disposal they gave to eager listeners accounts of their experiences at Gallipoli. Local residents are always pleased to hear first-hand news of the work of our boys, and each phase of the operations at the Dardanelles is heard with interest. When the Mayor was passing through the carriages conversing with the men, he came across Dvr. J. H. Samuel, of Wooloowin, who said he had been in the company of the Mayor's son (Sergt. Stanley Smith), just prior to his leaving Egypt. He also had been with Corp. G. Allen (son of Mr. G. Allen, of Messrs. Cribb and Foote's), Pte. Bourke (son of Mr. J. G. Bourke, of Harlin-road, Ptes. Herb. and Frank O'Connor (sons of Mrs. O'Connor, of the Girls' Grammar School), and Pte. W Campbell, of North Ipswich. All of these were quite well when he left. Dvr. Samuel will pay a visit to Ipswich during this week-end when he intends to call on Mrs. O'Connor and the Mayor. Amongst the company was Pte. Arthur Napier Goleby (nephew of Mr. F. Goleby, of Ipswich), who is rather badly wounded, one of his legs being cut off and the other badly shattered. Sergt. J. A. Forbes (eldest son of Mr. D. G. Forbes, formerly loco. superintendent in Ipswich, but now of Townsville), was also on board the train. The ladies of the Red Cross Society were as usual attentive to the men and supplied them liberally with refreshments ; which they greatly appreciated.

    Welcomed Home.
    SICK AND WOUNDED.
    LAST NIGHT'S CONTINGENT.
    Amidst scenes of great enthusiasm, a further batch of returned soldiers was welcomed home last night at the Central railway station. One hundred men from the Corporals' School, Rifle Range, under Captain Hobday, formed a guard of honour, and Fraser's Paddock Band, under Bandmaster Caves, was in attendance. Among those on the platform who welcomed the men were the State Commandant (Brigadier-general Lee), the Acting Chief Secretary (Hon J. M. Hunter), Ald. G. Down (representing the Mayor), Inspector Carroll, Mesdames Lee, Anderson, Hunter, and Down, and Miss Hunter. The special train steamed into the station at 8.30 o'clock to the strains of "See the Conquering Hero Comes" and "Home, Sweet Home." A large concourse outside the enclosure vigorously cheered the returned heroes. The party which detrained comprised 44 men, 3 officers, and 3 nurses. The majority of the men were on the sick list, but there were four cot cases. The voyage to Australia was an uneventful one, excepting that there were two deaths. Captain Yule was the medical officer in charge. Captain Tiddy (staff officer for returned soldiers) met the train at Ipswich. Brigadier- general Lee briefly addressed the returned party. Mr. Hunter, on behalf of the Queensland Government, extended to the men a hearty welcome. It was at least two years ago, he said, since they left Australia to fight for liberty and justice. At that time they were an unknown quantity, so far as military warfare was concerned; but they had since proved to the world that they had within them the same qualities as their forefathers. In their first baptism of fire, the Australians gained for themselves a new name— the name of Anzac, which would for ever symbolise dauntless courage, heroism, and fortitude in time of stress and strain. They had gained for their country an everlasting name. There was it day when Australians somewhat hesitated to he known as such, but to-day they were proud of the name. (Hear, hear.) After referring to current happenings in the war areas, Mr. Hunter alluded to the death of Lord Kitchener, who, he said, was a chief known to them all in more ways than one. He was the man who laid the foundation of our military army, while they also knew him as a leader of the Empire. They trusted that their return to their native land would bring them health and strength. They prayed that they would know many years of happiness in this sunn land of Queensland, and that they would receive the just reward for their noble deeds. Mr. Hunter again welcomed the men, and added that their services would not be forgotten in Australia. "May you," concluded the Minister, "receive the reward you deserve." (Cheers.) Ald. Down apologised for the unavoidable absence of the Mayor, and on behalf of the City of Brisbane heartily welcomed the soldiers home. At the instance of Mr. Hunter, cheers were given for the returned party. The following is a list of those who returned:—

    James Basil Franks (aka James Basil Pearson, Lester Basil Sinclair, John Mystery).

    Two Australian publishers uncovered a rich vein in the market some forty years apart: Lester Sinclair was one of them. Sinclair wrote children’s books during the 40s and 50s under the pen-name, “John Mystery” and broke new ground in Aussie culture. Lamentably, Lester Basil Sinclair’s ground-breaking accomplishment has generated hardly any enthusiasm at all among modern historians. In the 1940s, Sinclair, under the name “John Mystery” imprint, turned out thousands of mass-market children’s book which were cheap, colourful and filled a need during wartime. Sinclair had the right idea. During this period in Australia, America and the UK, there were fewer toys being manufactured and, as a result, inexpensive children’s books became big business. The US publisher, Simon & Schuster, took advantage of this marketing opportunity with great gusto. The company produced the first twelve of its new line of Little Golden Books in 1942. The books sold at 25 cents and “were readily accessible to the general public in supermarket and department stores.” Marjorie Allen, US children’s author and reviewer, writes, “Since parents during the forties were being encouraged to read aloud to their children, picking up a few inexpensive Golden Books on a trip to the market became a viable option.” By 1953, nearly 300 million Little Golden Books had been sold. Ironically, one of the first of Sinclair’s later John Mystery series, The Brave Little Pig, written and illustrated by Betty Marshall, and published “in beautiful colour”, was a dead-ringer for a Little Golden Book.
    “John Mystery”, books a success
    Sinclair opted for a new look for this break-away series; he dropped the John Mystery’s “Dear Cobber” letter “from Adventure Castle” (“I have had thousands of letter from the cobbers who read my books … I am glad to have you as my friend.”) on inside covers, and the familiar John Mystery Adventure Castle logo from the back cover. Sinclair later admitted that he was swayed by an eminent American merchandiser’s dictum: the first principle is to find a need, then fill it. In some of his personal notes, which he gave me during our last encounter, Sinclair writes, “The proven need, and the figures of the John Mystery range … are founded firmly on this fact. “It must be remembered that the success of John Mystery books was achieved without (the) benefit of advertising of any kind; it was (achieved) by mail with an articulate age group of child readers.” The John Mystery books were distributed Australia-wide through eighty chain stores, twenty-nine of which were in Sydney; they were printed in Sydney by Publicity Press, which was established in 1938. By the early 1950s, the John Mystery imprint was a spent force.

    BRISBANE MAN WON FORTUNE
    BRISBANE, Saturday.

    SUDDEN acquisition of wealth for most people means the fulfilment of long-cherished dreams of travel, or perhaps it leads to a life of luxury and ease. Not so with William Parsell George, a Brisbane man who with his wife won £31,500 in a Queensland investment. As a member of the A.I.F. he served at Gallipoli and in France, and he has seen enough of the world for the time being. Neither does a life of idleness appeal to him. Twelve months ago he set up in business on his own, establishing the Town and Country Joinery Pty., Ltd., Commercial-road, Bulimba, and his hope is. that the business will grow big enough to absorb the little fortune that has come so suddenly to him. That is characteristic of the man and of the manner in which he has taken his good fortune. He learned of the windfall when he was engaged in a game of snooker at a city club; but refused to become excited and after finishing his game went home, where he found that his wife had already heard the news. The £37,500 represents only three-fourths of the dividend of £50,000 which Mr. George's investment yielded. The balance goes to Mr. C. Mossop, of City View-road, Camp Hill, Brisbane, who, incidentally, was not aware that he held a share in the investment until the tidings that he was richer by £12,500 was imparted to him. Mr. Mossop is garage manager for Queensland Pastoral Supplies, by whom George also was employed until he started his own business, and to show his appreciation of the many kindnesses he had received at the garage man's hands, Mr. George included him in three investments he made about Christmas time, while Mr. Mossop was on a holiday in Melbourne. Mr. George has made regular investments for many years in his wife's and his own name; but on these occasions he divided his half share with Mr. Mossop, 'I wouldn't tell him of what I had done,' said Mr. George, 'because I knew he would want to pay for his share. It was little enough to do for him after all be has done for me, and I am glad he has won.' Mr. George deserves his good luck, for he is no faint-hearted seeker after fortune, who is discouraged because it does not fail into his lap at the first or the hundred and first attempt. Over many years since his return from the war he wooed the fickle lady with his investments, and last week his return had been £10, £5, 16/8 and £1/3/4. 'I was well on the debit side; before this,' he remarked, and jokingly added, 'I don't think £6,000 would have got me out of it; but you have to keep on trying if you want to get in the big money. 'I am a great believer in these investments, that is, of course, if you do keep on trying.' When asked if he had any thought of retiring, Mr. George laughed scornfully as he declared, 'I have got too much good work in me yet. 'No,' he added, 'I am carrying on just as I was before, and I certainly am not going to rest on my laurels. I will make my investments just as regularly in the future, and perhaps I'll get another big dividend.'

    Herbert Henry Parke Hamilton.

    Mr. R. Hamilton, of Morningside, has just received word from his sons, William, an ex-pupil of Mr. Burbank, surveyor, Chinchilla, and Herbert, of the Brisbane Technical College staff, who went away with the 26th Battalion, A.I.F. After going through Gallipoli, they went to France, where both were wounded, Herbert in both hands at Pozieres, and William, some months later, at the Ancre in both hands, both foot, and throat. Both speak very highly of the Red Cross and surgical attention they received, and describe their experience in hospital as "heavenly.' The severity of the attack in which William was last engaged may be judged by the number of his wounds, but there is satisfaction in the knowledge that— to use his own words— "We (then had only 10 men) got into their trenches which were manned two deep, and must have made a show. In a few minutes they were all running away, and I managed to get the last, and I think the one before him with my rifle. We pursued them along the trench to a bend, where they formed up in strength with a big Hun in front, beside a heap of bombs which he was throwing for all he was worth. He aimed one at me but it missed, and when I put up my revolver, although it did not go off, he ran for his life, and the trench was cleared." On New Year's Eve he was pleasantly surprised by the news that he had received a second star (his first commission being at Pozieres) and that his brother Bert, who had rejoined the fighting-line, had been recommended for a commission and sent to the officers' training battalion at Cambridge, where he is now housed at Trinity College. His wounds are nearly healed, and he says he hopes all his friends in Australia will have spent an equally happy New Year.

    Mr. R. Hamilton has received some interesting letters from his sergeant sons fighting In France. Sergeant Herbert Hamilton, who enlisted from the Brisbane Technical College staff, writes :-"If people would only get that idea of the Allies advancing out of their minds, they would have good reason to be jealous of our position. The other fellows are about 400 yards in front, and appear quite contented with their position. The trenches are comfortable, partly lined, and floored-this is essential on account of the wet, which is a decided draw-back in this peaceful life."

    "A young cadet stowed away on board our boat at Fremantle, and they did not find him until a couple of days out. When he was asked by the officers why he stowed away he said he wanted to go to the war as well as us. They got his parents' consent by wireless and he is now with the Twenty-eighth Battalion [actually the 26th battalion],Western Australia, as bugler."

    BUGLER HAMILTON
    W.A.'s Youngest Soldier
    LETTERS FROM EGYPT.

    Bugler Herbert Hamilton, the 16 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Hamilton, John-street, Midland Junction, who stowed away on a transport leaving Fremantle, was discovered at sea, and accepted as a bugler, writes several letters to his parents telling of his welfare and his experiences in Egypt. He Is having an easy time, he says, "just pottering round doing odd Jobs for the Brigadier." He escapes the ordinary drill, but attends parade once a fortnight, when all fall In to receive pay. "On ordinary days," remarks the observant bugler, 'there is about five per cent. on sick parade. On pay day there is no sick." He has not had any leave lately, and finds that "things are becoming a little bit stale." There Is not much to talk about, and nothing to see but tents and sand, but he does not mind, for "I am In the Army now, and, as the Brigadier says, 'a man who is always complaining Is not a soldier.' When any of the officers start talking to me, continues Herbert, 'they always ask me if I am not home sick, but I can't see anything to be homesick about just yet. Every Sunday after church service, the 'parson asks me why I left, home. He says, 'Did you have a row with your people and clear out? Don't be frightened to tell me.' I get that every Sunday after church. On the third night at sea, when the captain called me to his office and told me you had given permission for me to go on, he shook hands with me, wished me every success, and hoped I would come back a credit to Western Australia. You need not be afraid of my keeping bad company because the Brigadier has taken charge of me, and when I am able to get leave I am only allowed out with the Brigadier's mounted orderly.

    LIFE IN THE TRENCHES A BOY'S IMPRESSIONS
    The youngest solider to leave Australia was Herbert Hamilton, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Hamilton, of Midland Junction, a fourteen year old boy whose adventurous spirit led him to stow away on one of the outgoing transports eighteen months or so ago. His fervent appeal to the Colonel in charge to be allowed to go on was acceded to, and he has ever since been the pet of the regiment. He saw a good deal of the fighting at Gallipoli, and his latest letters to his parents, from which we make the extracts published below, are sent from France:

    In the Field;
    July something.

    I don't know exactly what date it is, but I know it is just somewhere in the beginning of July. I will know for certain to-night, for I think the paper is coming up. I know this much, though, that twelve months ago I was stopping at Shepherd's Hotel, Cairo, and to-day I am out here in the trenches trying to stop bullets. We are still doing our turn in the trenches, etc., and moving about as per instructions. As regards myself I am iust recovering from one of my favorite colds, and will be perfectly right again in a
    few days. I do not know how much longer I have to wait for another letter; I think this is the fifth week now since I received my last. Where they are going or what they are doing with them i have not the faintest idea, but whatever they are doing with them I
    wish they would try to hurry. I don't think I can tell you much more, only that Fritz, is very quiet in this sector. He is keeping in his place for once, anyhow. It does not matter where I am, in the trenches or in the towns, and I happen to meet any officers from the Brigadier downwards to the subs., they always greet me with a smile or a grin, and inquire after my health. A couple of months age we accomplished a route march of 20 miles in a day and a half, full pack up, and I stuck the whole journey. You should have heard the congratulations from all ranks.

    In the Field, July 3rd. 1916.

    Just a few lines to let you know I am still alive, although it is only yesterday since I wrote my last letter. This is an extra special birthday number, etc. As you know, I spent my last birthday in a camp in Egypt, and this one in a trench in Belgium. I was just thinking to myself where I would spend the next one, whether it would be in Australia or in Belgium with a cross over me. I think the only thing I can do is to keep on wondering, but let's hope for the best — Australia for preference. Lately we have been having beautiful weather, and fairly easy time considering. I think our chaps like being in the trenches better than out in the billets, because when in billets it's all fatigue half in the night and half in early morning. Since this last advance of ours on the western front which has proved very successful, I think that we will be back for Christmas. At present there are rumors flying everywhere stating that we, "the Anzacs," are going to advance, which I think will be before you receive this— but where nobody knows. There is nothing much to write about just at present, only that we are having a little more of the trenches, and trimming Germany up a little every now and then. He has not caught me yet, and I am keeping out of his road as much as possible; but I suppose he will catch me like the rest some day, but that don't worry me so long as I catch him first. I have a faint idea that I have caught both a Fritz and an old Johnny Turk.

    Dear Mother, — Since my last letter I have had some more shifting about, and I am now nearer Australia than I have been for a long time. We are now stationed at a place called Tel-el-Kebir, and if you remember it was at this place in the year 1882 that the
    British fought a great battle. The battlefield itself is only just outside our camp, and I am told there are old relics still there. I have not been out there yet, but it will not be long before I will. I think this camp when it is finished and properly organised will
    be the biggest Egypt has ever seen, for every Australian will be here, and the camp stretches for miles along the main line over the canal. It will show you how near we are to this old battlefield when the other day one of the chaps was doing a little digging, and he came across an old skull. Yesterday was New Year's Day, and I hope you all had a very good time, because my being away won't make any difference, I don't think. Well, we did not have such a good time as some of the chaps who were still camped round Cairo, but we had as good a time as could be expected away out in this desert about 20 miles from the nearest township. Towards evening some gifts and parcels came along for us, so we drew lots for the parcels. I drew a number and received a small parcel which came from W.A. A Corporal of the 28th drew a parcel which came from Mr. Evans, the workshops manager, so he was pretty lucky.

    WEDDING.
    A quite but pretty wedding was celebrated in St. Pauls Church of England on Monday November 28th by the Rev. Michael, when Violet Mary Forse, youngest daughter of Mr and.Mrs H. Forse, Strathdickie, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr A. E. Harrison, of Bowen. The bride, who was given away by her father, was nicely at
    tired in a white crepe de chene trimmed with pearls, and wore a mop cap, made by herself. She was attended by two bridesmaids, nieces of the bride, little Florence May and Gwendoline Albeitz, who carried baskets of ferns and flowers. Mr E. MacLean, of Bowen, acted as best man. On entering the Church “The Voice that Breathed o’er Eden” was played by Mrs. F. G. Forse, sister-in-law of the bride. The wedding breakfast was held at the residence of the bride’s parents, to which place they motored, after the wedding ceremony.

    Thomas Cotgrave Hewitt.

    Concerning the death of Captain Hewitt, brother of Mr. Hewitt, of Port Pirie, the Brisbane Courier of September 1 says :-"Mr. G. P. Barbour, M.A., head master of the Toowoomba Grammar School, has received advice that Captain Thomas C. Hewitt, formerly science master at the Toowoomba Grammar School, was killed in action in France on July 29. The late Captain Hewitt, whose parents reside at Baulkham Hills, Parramatta, New South Wales, was educated at the King's School, Parramatta, and was a Bachelor of Arts of the Sydney University. He was connected with the staff of the Toowoomba Grammar School from 1907 until March 1915, when he enlisted. Captain Hewitt held a commission prior to enlisting, and had charge of the Grammar School cadets, and was also acting area-officer for Toowoomba for some time. He was attached to the 26th infantry battalion of the A.I.F., and saw about three months service at Gallipoli. He arrived in France about March 29 last, and letters received by Mr. G. P. Barbour from Captain Hewitt last week stated that he (Captain Hewitt), at the time of writing, had charge of 200 yards of he front line trenches. Captain "Tom" Hewitt, as he was known to his many friends in Toowoomba, was very popular, both with the pupils of the Grammar School and the general public. He has also numerous friends in W.A., where, for some years, he belonged to the staff of the Guildford Grammar School, under the late Major W. Stewart Corr. He was unmarried, and was 35 years of age."

    Statement made by repatriated prisoner of war: Sergeant John Robert Hickling (No.76), No.4 Platoon, "A" Company, 26th Battalion, 1st February 1919.
    The Battalion attacked at 4 a.m. on 26.3.17, our objective being the village of Lagnicourt. My company was on the right flank of the village. We were assisted by an artillery barrage. "A" Company reached and passed the village. Our casualties were heavy, my platoon being practically wiped out. Machine gun and rifle fire caused most damage and I think some of our own shells burst short. What was left of the Battalion got into a vacated German position which we improved as well as we could. The enemy counter-attacked and, as our right flank was in the air, Fritz was able to get around us. He also succeeded in breaking through the posts on our left, and our party was completely cut off. We held on until our machine gun was knocked out and ammunition expended. We were in touch with no one and could get no messages through, so recognising our position as hopeless, we surrendered. About 15 of the 26th Battalion were captured with me. I saw:-

    Lieutenant Humphries of "A" Company, 26th Battalion killed in action. He was in the position we occupied.

    Lieutenant Lloyd, 26th Battalion, was with us for a time, but was not there when the Germans counter-attacked.

    Corporal Bauer, Lance Corporal Hodson (?)
    Privates Edmondson, and O'Brien.
    Sergeant M.C.McMurtrie, Privates Wood, Laing
    Privates Peterson and Cubis, all of the 26th Battalion.

    were among the prisoners I saw when taken behind the German lines. (source: Father Terry Hickling - Warwick, Queensland).

    "Portrait of 88 Private (Pte) Bertram Edward Hoult, 26th Battalion sitting on a camel in front of The Sphinx. Pte Hoult, a sawyer or timber worker fron Nanango, Queensland, enlisted on 1 February 1915. He embarked from Brisbane aboard HMAT Ascanius (A11) on 24 May 1915. He served at Gallipoli and on the Western Front where he was wounded and captured at Pozieres on 29 July 1916. Still suffering from a leg wound he was repatriated to England via the neutral Netherlands in February 1918. Hospitalised immediately, his left foot was amputated in March 1918 and despite continued treatment his left leg had to be amputated in Sepember 1919. He returned to Australia two months later. A message on the reverse and dated 23 April 1916 reads: "Dear Graham, just a line hoping this finds you quite well. I am at the above address [17th General Hospital, France] on account of a touch of the mumps. This is the photo I promised to send that Sunday out at the Pyramids in Egypt. I thought this hardly good enough to send you but I made the promise I must keep. I am still with the same battalion. Kind regards from your friend B. Hoult". The Graham mentioned was possibly 65 Pte Ernest Graham also of the 26th Battalion who enlisted and embarked with Pte Hoult. Pte Graham returned to Australia in July 1917."

    A number of Australians were injured, some seriously, in accidents at work or while being moved by the Germans. On commando, a man was in an iron mine for the night shift. While he was pushing a wagon, it collided with another, crushing his foot. Blood poisoning in old wounds resulted and, after two operations, his leg was amputated below the knee.

    "WANGARATTA GENERAL SESSIONS
    James Lewis Iseppi was charged with having at Brimin on May 1, 1922, stolen a horse, the property or Alexander Grant Williams; on a second count with stealing a saddle and bridle, at the same time and place, the property of John A, Williams. Mr, Gurner prosecuted for the Crown, and Mr. M. P.Ryan (of Beechworth) defended accused. The following Jury were empanelled: S. Davidson (foreman), T. Darkendorff, F. Bould, J. A. Vincent, J. T.McLeod, N. McPherson, H. Sisely, H.White, E. Beardmore, J. Maudsley, W.J. Robb and A. E. Ellis. The evidence, as outlined by the Crown Prosecutor, was to the effect that accused had been working for Mr. Williams at Brimin, and on April 20, after having been paid in full he left wlthout notice. After he had gone a grey horse, saddle and bridle were missing. Iseppi also left without paying 15/ for some tobacco which Mr. Williams bought for him. Iseppi, was later found by the police at Culcairn. He said he had come from Wagga. The horse, saddle and bridle were found in a stable at Culcalrn and were later identified by Mr. Williams. When accused was arrested he said he was glad that it had happened, as he had been worried about It. When asked why he had taken the horse he said he did not know, but he knew Mr. Williams was a breeder of good horses. John A. Williams, in his evidence said he had engaged accused at 30/ a week, and he later offered him 45/- to remain during the ploughing season. He denied having offered accused the use of a horse to ride when he required it. When he interviewed accused in the lockup at Culcairn he told him (accused) that he would have tracked him to Queensland. Accused replied, ‘You would not have got me only I took the wrong track. ‘ Accused, gave evidence on oath. He said he took the horse in order to visit his wife and children, at Holbrook, and intended to return. Mr. Williams having offered him the use of the horse when he wanted to go anywhere. He had taken the wrong track and so had got to Culcairn. When he was questioned he told the police he was on his way to Holbrook. He had left a pair of blankets and other articles of clothing at Williams' which he considered as valuable as the horse, saddle and bridle. He had a war record of four years service. His Honor pointed out the jury that they might find accused guilty of unlawfully using the horse. The jury returned the verdict of guilty of illegally using. Mr. Ryan appealed for leniency on behalf of accused. He submitted that the case was one which could be met with a small fine. Accused was not derelict and was a married man with a family. His Honour sentenced accused in two month's imprisonment, the sentence to be suspended on accused entering into a bond of £50 to be of good behaviour for 12 months. Iseppi was subsequently re-arrested on warrant on a charge of horse stealing in 1913.—‘Despatch. ‘

On 9 December, as the evacuation of Gallipoli was underway, he was wounded in the arms and thigh by shrapnel and admitted to the 7th Field Ambulance and then the 13th Casualty Clearing Station. He was evacuated by the hospital ship HS Grantully Castle to hospital at Mudros on 10 December, on the nearby Greek island of Lemnos, where Norman had died only a few weeks earlier. From Mudros he was transferred to the No 1 Auxiliary Hospital at Heliopolis in Egypt on 14 December. After recovering, on 5 February 1916 he was transferred to Zeitoun base and then later Moascar base. He embarked from Alexandria with the British Expeditionary Force for Marseilles on 15 March 1915, and went onto the Western Front in France where he was wounded again on 29 July 1916, just one month into the Battle of the Somme, with a severe fracture of the arm caused by a gunshot. He was admitted to the Ambulance train and taken to Etaples, the large "hospital city" and military base on the coast of northern France. Evacuation to England followed on 5 August from Calais on the HS Newhaven. After recovering he left Weymouth hospital on 23 November and was discharged for return to Australia on 14 January 1917. He returned to Australia on HS Kanowna arriving back in Sydney at Woolloomooloo wharf on Sunday 11 March 1917. (source: booklet by David Johnston).

    Samuel Reginald Jones.

    "Roma and district has suffered a severe loss in the death of Mr. S. R, Jones, which took place in Roma Hospital last night. Mr. Jones was 57 years of age, and was the second son of the late Mr. S. L. and Mrs. Jones, early graziers at Chadford, in the Wallumbilla district where Mr. Reg. Jones was born. Later, the family became residents of Roma, where Mr. Jones conducted a butchering business for many years, and later selected land at Warooby and engaged in wheat-growing. As well as helping with farm ing after leaving school, he also went on many droving trips. When Australia became actively engaged in the
    last war, 1914-18, Mr. Jones with his three brothers ,enlisted in the Light Horse. AIF. and served on Gallipoli, and other theatres of war in Egypt and Palestine .and returned after the armistice with the rank of sergeant. Returning to Roma he went on to the
    Warooby property, where he engaged in wheat-growing for some years, but latterly was principally engaged in cattle breeding. He became interested in local authority matters and was elected a member of Bungil Shire Council about 20 years ago, and later won a contest for the position of Chairman, and had been returned unopposed for that position ever since and he'd it up to his death .He also took a keen interest in Roma Hospital and also the Returned Soldiers League, and was a member of the Repatriation Committee. He possessed a rugged straightforward personality, and his staunch advocacy of all movements to assist the welfare of his former comrades and also the men of the Services today, won him many admirers. He had also taken keen and active interest in local organisations working for the benefit of the man on the land, and more particularly the smaller settlers. He was unmarried, and is survived by two brothers and four sisters."

He was, we believe, born at Eidsvold but was educated in Bundaberg, where he had a host of friends, who will sympathise with the bereaved parents and other relatives in their heavy loss, but who will find solace in the fact that he gave his life in nobly fighting for the honor and liberty of his beloved country. It is but a few months back that it was officially notified his brother had been wounded in action. Mrs. Watson, Barolin-road, is aunt to the deceased young soldier."

    THE HOME COMING.
    A SHATTERED COMPANY.
    The bloodstained fields of France sent back to Brisbane last night half a hundred men, and Egypt ten more, the shattered condition of the gallant fellows exciting the keen sympathy of the crowd who met them at the Central Station. Of the 59 men who returned no fewer than 41 were wounded, there being four cot cases, while a number of others had lost a leg, some an arm, others were bandaged about the head, and in general the small company bore an inordinate proportion of wounds and scars. At Kangaroo Point a warm, kindly welcome was awaiting them from the ladies of the Red Cross Society, and Brigadier General Irving (State Commandant) called upon the Home Secretary to address a few words to the men. This Mr Huxham did, declaring, on behalf of the State Government, that he uttered no formal welcome, but that the Ministry was prepared to do its utmost for men who had done then utmost for the Empire. The Mayor, on behalf of the citizens, added his sincere welcome, expressing the hope that the men might soon recover from their wounds and extending to them the heartfelt gratitude of the city for what they had done on behalf of the Empire. The list of the returned men is as follows -

    Awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, September 1916.

    Awarded the Military Cross, March 1917.

    "Francis Claud Lloyd was born in Roma, Queensland, and worked as a clerk at the Commonwealth Bank in Brisbane. He was 22 years old when he enlisted in the 26th Infantry Battalion of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) on 29 April 1915. Lloyd stayed with the 26th Battalion throughout his service and was at Gallipoli, then in France and Belgium, fighting in many of the major battles in which the AIF was involved between 1916 and 1918. While holding the position of adjutant,* Lloyd rose through the ranks from Sergeant to Captain and had a distinguished record of service. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal in September 1916 for his service during the attacks at Pozières ridge. Despite being wounded in both legs and in the head, he remained on duty organising the men into the correct formation and seeing his wave safely off before receiving medical attention. The following year, in March 1917, Lloyd also received the Military Cross for the ‘tactical ability, skill and dash’ he showed during the attack on Malt Trench, north of Warlencourt, France, in which he not only captured enemy trenches but also repelled the enemy counterattack. Lloyd was recognised once more in February 1918 when he was mentioned in despatches and also received a personal letter from General Birdwood congratulating him for the awards that he had received. Wounded twice more after the attack on Pozières ridge – the second time in March 1917 in action near Lagnicourt in northern France – he once again remained on duty despite his injuries. The third time Lloyd was wounded was during his Battalion's last action on 3 October 1918. The Battalion was part of the operation to breach the Beaurevoir Line, the third and final line of the Hindenburg defences. Lloyd suffered severe gunshot wounds to the neck, abdomen and left thigh and was invalided back to England where he spent the next few months recovering. Lloyd was discharged from service on 25 November 1919. He returned to Australia and resumed his post at the Commonwealth Bank, remaining in banking throughout his career."

He was a sterling young fellow, and was greatly esteemed by all those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He was well known in the racing world as an owner, trainer, and rider of horses. He was ever recognised to be a straight-goer, and always enjoyed the confidence of the public and or those for whom he trained. Among well-known performers of which he had charge were Mr Arthur Payne's horse Royston which won several races round this district and on Mr Wren's pony courses. He also trained Statem and S.B.M. for Messrs Sullivan Bros., of Millbrook, and won numerous races for those owners. The deep sympathy of the many frends of Mr and Mrs Mackin will be extended to them in their severe loss.

    Divorce Sought
    On Grounds
    Of Desertion
    A former Queensland company director petitioned, for divorce in this week's District Court at Lithgow on the grounds of his wife's desertion. The petitioner was Robert Emil Alexander McKimmin, of Katoomba -street, Katoomba, who sought a divorce from Rose McKimmin. His Honor, Judge McKillop, found the issues in the affirmative.The matter was not defended, Mr. Dennis Mahoney appearing for the petitioner. McKimmin told His Honor he was married in 1917 at Glebe and had come to N.S.W from Townsville in 1948. They had lived happily together till 1931 when his wife allegedly started drinking to excess and associating with other men. "We became further and further estranged, but we continued to live together in the same house for the sake of the two children," McKimmin said. During the war he was frequently away on company business and when he returned people told him certain things concerning his wife's alleged relations with a member of the armed forces.

    Trips To England
    His wife had been on trips to England and last left for England in 1946 when, he told her he would support her for two years. She had remained away for seven years and he had received no letters in the last three years. "She wrote every two or three months for the first two years, but only when she had some request to make, sometimes for money," McKimmin said from the witness box. He told His Honor that when, his wife had given no indication of returning home he had simply stopped sending her money. He had been paying her £7 per week. She had returned to Sydney in December last year, he added. Petitioner's counsel tendered several letters which were purported to have been written to her husband by the respondent. His wife had told him she had a couple of trips to America, McKimmin said, explaining to His Honor that "the other man" was .an American named Rush. Corroborative evidence on some issues was given by the petitioner's son, Mr. John Felix Robert McKimmin, His Honor then finding the issues in the affirmative.

    LETTERS FROM THE FRONT.
    Cpl. Clarence Medhurst wrote as follows to his parents at Bottle Creek on November 7th, and the letter was received on December 30th : — Dear Father and Mother, —
    Hoping all are well, as I am at present. Well, we are in the trenches and a pretty monotonous job it is. There is very little doing. The Turks are about 70 yards away from where I am, but we never see any. There are a few shells and bombs flying about, but we keep low, and there is very little danger from rifle fire. I wish they would advance a bit, it would be a bit more interesting. We do 36 hours in the trenches and got 12 off. There is not much to do, but it is trying. I have been made Corporal of a section of about 12 men; there is no extra pay attached to it yet, but I need not do any fatigue work. The weather is dry and a bit cold at night, but we have a warm possa dugout in the side of the trench to sleep in. I got your letter dated 7th September ; very sorry to see the drought has lasted so long ; hope it is broken by this ; Bottle Creek must be very low. If the military don't send the money along regularly, write to the staff pay office and shake them up. I believe there is a big mail in for us, I hope there is some for me. We hear a lot of rumors about the war being over soon. I don't know if there is anything in it. We are on top of a high hill overlooking the sea, it is a splendid view ; there are always a few hospital and battleships lying off the coast. Well, I think this is all this time, so good-bye, with love from Clarence.

    The following details are just to hand regarding the late Corporal Clarence J. Medhurst, whose death was reported in a recent issue: —
    Corporal Medhurst enlisted on 28th April, 1915, and went into camp at Enoggera. He left Australia on 24th May for Egypt, and left Egypt for Gallipoli on 4th September, 1915, where he was guard of the canteen for a month, returning to Egypt at Xmas. He was in Arabia till March last, when he went to France, thence to Belgium, and back to France, where he was promoted to be a signaller and telephone operator, in the discharge of which important duty he was shot. He thus saw fighting on several of the fronts, and the news of his death came as a great shock to a wide circle of friends.

    BOOYAL
    (From our own Correspondent.) December 18.
    On Saturday, December 6, a welcome home was tendered to Private William Spencer Neal, D.C.M., at the Booyal Hall by way of a social and dance. Private Neal was working in the district for a considerable time prior to the commencement of the war, and was highly respected by the residents of Booyal, and to show their appreciation of this gallant soldier, Mr. Moore, on behalf of the citizens of Booyal and district, presented him with a gold badge, suitably inscribed. In the unavoidable absence of Councillor Rosenlund on account of illness, the Shire Certificate was presented by Mr: Moore. Private Neal suitably replied. Private Neal obtained his honour of reward, D.C.M., during the attack near Mont St. Quentin, north-east of Peronne, on the 2nd of September, 1918. He was attached to the brigade snipers. The official report states: — "A large number of Germans were running towards their rear lines, travelling along a shallow communication trench which ran from our newly acquired line towards enemy territory. Private Neal at once came into action and killed twenty of the enemy with his rifle fire. A German officer then observed Private Neal and from a range of forty yards fired point blank at him but missed. Private Neal immediately replied, killing the officer, who was apparently directing and urging his men to the rear. When the rest of the enemy knew that their officer had fallen they wheeled round in a body and surrendered to the 25th Battalion. On another occasion a machine gun was firing on our advancing troops - Private Neal killed three of the enemy who were advancing to work the gun and finally put the gun out of action. On a further occasion he killed several of the retiring enemy, including one who carried a machine gun. In all Private Neal killed thirty of the enemy. He showed conspicuous coolness and courage during the whole operation. Recommended by Brigadier-General E.A.Wilson, C.B., D.S.O., commanding the 7th Australian Infantry Brigade. Received and passed by Major-General Charles Rosenthal, commanding the 2nd Australian Division.

    A Farmer Burned to Death.
    Mr D O'Donnell, of Ashwell, was burnt to death yesterday (our Rosewood correspondent advised last night) It appears that shortly after lunch the deceased went to attend to some cows in a paddock near his home, and as he did not return his wife went in search of him. She could not find him, and advised her neighbours. The search was unavailing until about 10 o'clock at night, when his body was discovered. His clothing was destroyed by a fire that earlier in the afternoon had spread among a patch of lantana near his boundary fence. From observations made it is surmised the victim made strenuous efforts to save the fence from destruction by the fire, and as overcome by the flames, which subsequently passed over his body. The deceased, who was born in Donegal, Ireland, was highly respected in the Ashwell district, where he had resided for the past 41 years. He was 66 years of age. He is the father of Captain F. M. O'Donnell, now fighting in Gallipoli. He leaves a widow, three sons, and two daughters, one of the latter being in charge of the telephone exchange at Warwick. The funeral took place at the Tallegalla Cemetery to-day, the Rev Father Kelleher conducting the service.

    SOLDIERS' RETURN. YESTERDAY'S CONTINGENT. TOOWOOMBA MEN WELCOMED.
    Two Toowoomba men were included in the contingent of wounded and invalided soldiers which passed through Toowoomba yesterday afternoon on their way to Brisbane from Egypt, after serving with all gallantry at the front— in Gallipoli. The men made the journey from the South by special train, and reached Toowoomba between four and five o'clock, the mall train following almost immediately. There were 43 soldiers in all, the majority being convalescents after sickness, though some suffered from the effects of serious wounds. Captain Irwin was in charge of the contingent, and with him was Captain Lacey and Lieut. Taylor, both of Brisbane, and several other officers. Sisters Snelling (herself a convalescent), Ibers and Nagel, from the staff of No, 1 Australian General Hospital at Heliopolls, were also among the party.
    There was a large crowd of citizens to welcome the men as the train came in. The Mayoress (Mrs. H. G. Webb). was present to distribute the usual gifts, and with her was Miss Agnes Tolmie, who in her capacity as honorary Secretary of the Red Cross Society, pressed upon the soldiers equally acceptable offerings, including cigarettes, beloved of the military heart. The Mayor, could not be present owing to his having accompanied the Hon. J. Huxham, Assistant Secretary of the Home Department, to the Warwick Show.
    The two Toowoomba men referred to, Corporal Alan Porter, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Porter, of Godfrey street, and Private Herbert Smallbone, son of Mrs. M. J. Smith, of Ruthven street, found themselves in the midst of their relatives, and friends upon alighting from the train. Both were looking in the best of health, and were certainly in the best of spirits, and they were overwhelmed with congratulations upon their safe return.
    Corporal Alan Porter is a member of No. 144, A Company, 26th Battalion, 7th Brigade, and he left for Egypt with the 2nd. Australian Division in April last. In Egypt he was in training for the hard trial before him for a couple of months, and afterwards did splendid service at the front. He was fortunate in escaping with nothing worse than illness, and has now to all appearance, completely recovered. The Corporal has nothing but good to say of the treatment accorded by the authorities to invalids, and to the care taken of them he largely owes his present well-being.
    Private Herbert L. Smallbone, of the 25th Battalion, enlisted at Charleville in January of last year, and was equally fortunate in escaping the more serious risks which were faced so bravely by the Australians at Gallipoli. Private Smallbone first proceeded to Egypt with his comrades, and reached the Peninsula some little time after hostilities were commenced there. He, too, saw hard service, and acted as a stretcher bearer. The only wound he received was, as he himself describes it, "a mere: scratch from a splinter under the eye— not worth mentioning." He was not so lucky, however, as regards illness, for he fell a victim to enteric fever, and was drafted back to Egypt, and into the hospital at Alexandria. Recovering, he was sent to a convalescent home at Port Said, and from, there returned to Australia. Private Smallbone was very jolly at the station yesterday, and was obviously pleased to be home again for a thorough rest, but is anxious to return at the first opportunity, and renew his acquaintance with the enemy.
    A pathetic instance of the grimness of life at the front was afforded by the presence on the train of Captain W. P. Holloway, of the 26th Battalion, a Brisbane man, who assisted to hold Hill 971 on Gallipoli. The hill was fiercely attacked by the Turks, and subsequently the machine gun section to which Captain Holloway belonged was shifted to Walker's Ridge, which was a fiercely bombed. Captain Holloway lost his right leg by a shell, which carried, the limb away at the knee without exploding, but grave as the mishap is the brave officer, is nothing daunted, his chief, regret being that he is now incapacitated for the further service in the field.
    Some diversion was caused among those on the platform, before the train proceeded on its way, by one of the returned men who insisted, in the face of his comrades' remonstrances, upon addressing those present from a carriage. Claiming to be an Irishman, the orator declared himself proud to be associated with Australians, and exhorted the wives, sisters and mothers of the men who had enlisted, from Toowoomba and the Downs generally, "not to fret," as the men were without exception doing well at the front.

    THE LATE PRIVATE HARRY
    RICKENBERG.
    Miss V. Baxter has received a letter, dated England, 11th July, from Private Harry Rickenberg (son of Mr. and Mrs. L. Rickenberg, of Pialba), whose sad death from illness in England was recently reported, in the course of which he says :—"I have been in hospital over in England practically since last Christmas, but I am getting on well, and am expecting to go back into the field sometime before next Christmas ; but I am looking forward for it to finish before that, as things are going on well for us on all fronts now. I suppose you have heard about Paddy getting his right leg taken off above the knee, and as far as I have heard he will be back in Australia at any time now, so you will not be able to have a dance with Paddy any more. Frank is still on the western front boxing on, and he has been a marvel to me, the way he has stuck to it for over 28 months. I tell you it is no joke being in the fields of a winter time especially when it is snowing and raining week in and week out, and bogging up to our necks in mud and water. When our infantry hopped over the top the ground was so soft and muddy from the artillery that our chaps used to get stuck in the mud and they would never have got out if somebody did not help them. When I left France you could hardly walk amongst the dead men in the field, and it used to make me feel a bit funny for a start ; but I take no notice of seeing pieces of one another lying about now. I have just seen the best part of this country here, which is worth seeing, and Scotland is my pick of the lot. It is just like being at home when you get amongst the Scotch people, as they think a lot of the Australian boys, and while I was up in Glasgow on furlough I always got an invitation to some private place for Sunday night's tea, and of course if there were any young lasses in the family I could not see my way clear to get away early after tea.
