"THE LATE PRIVATE WALTER B. JUTTNER.

An intimation has been received that No. 2379, Private Walter B. Juttner, of the 27th battalion, was killed in action in France on November 7. He was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Juttner, of Payneham, but formerly of Tanunda, where his quiet and unassuming nature won him a large cirde of friends. He was unselfish and self-sacrificing, so that he was loved and appreciated by all his associates, He enlisted in June, 1915, and sailed in September of that year for Egypt and afterwards for France." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 02 Dec 1916 (nla.gov.au)
