Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE E. C. LINDNER. 

The death from wounds at Alexandria of Private E. C. Lindner, of Halbury, on August 29, marks the falling of another brave Australian. Just 26 years old, he left Australia near the end of April, with the 5th reinforcements of the famous 10th Battalion, and was soon in the firing line, where between eight and ten weeks were spent without mishap, until on the morning of August 8 a bullet lodged in his neck. He was taken to Alexandria. An operation on the hospital ship proved futile, as the bullet could not be traced; but when in the 15th General Hospital the missile was located, and while waiting for an operation to extract it his end came. Private Lindner was serving with his cousin, who was shot in the head on August 7. He left a widow and child, and relatives at Halbury." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 18 Oct 1915 (nla.gov.au)
