Son of John and Mary Ann Esther AUSTIN, St Leonard's, Tasmania

Mrs. J. W Austin and Mrs. J. Austin, of St. Leonards, wish to tender their sincere thanks to all kind friends for letters and cards of sympathy received in their sad loss of a dear husband and two sons, Privates John and Thomas Austin, killed in France, especially the Sidmouth United Church Committee for their kind letters.
