Biography

"THE LATE PTE. A. LINDNER.

Advice was received recently that Pte. A. Lindner, second surviving son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Lindner, of Halbury, had died of wounds on August 7. The news came as a great shock to his relations and friends, because there had been no previous intimation that he had been wounded. At the time of his death Pte. Lindner had not long attained his nineteenth birthday. He was a fine specimen of Australian manhood. Joining the 5th Reinforcements of the famous 10th Battalion, he left Australia toward the end of April, and was in the trenches at Gallipoli early in June. A cousin, Pte. E. C. Lindner, who has recently been severely wounded, was in the same battalion. The two men fought side by side until separated in a furious bayonet charge. Several fine young fellows have enlisted from Halbury. Pte. A.  Lindner is the first of them to give his life for his country." - from the Adelaide Register 04 Sep 1915 (nla.gov.au)
