Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Alfred and Lucy MCWATERS, ClAvertoa, Hume Street, Toowoomba, Queensland.

Mr. A.D. McWaters, of Hume Street, Toowoomba (who was Mayor of that city in 1916) and Mrs. McWaters, have been offically advised that their only son, Corporal NOrman McWaters, has been killed in action.  Corporal McWaters enlisted about 18 months ago. Prior to going into camp he was employed as a draftsman at the Toowoomba Foundry.
