Biography

"Mrs. E. Lloyd, of Narracoorte, has received intelligence that one of her sons has been killed in action, and the other wounded. Pte. S. G. Lloyd was killed in France on May 7. The deceased, who was 25 years of age, enlisted more than 12 months ago, and had been on the western front for about eight months. He had been engaged in transport work until a month or two ago. Prior to enlisting, the deceased was in the employ of Mr. W. T. Grundy, and was a quiet, hard-working young man. Another son of Mrs. Lloyd, Pte. Thomas Lloyd, has been wounded. He was attached to the A.M.C., and enlisted about 10 months ago. A third son is fighting at the front." - from the Adelaide Register 02 Jun 1917 (nla.gov.au)
