Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE E. A. WARNER

Private E. A. Warner, who died of wounds in France on July 22, was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Warner, of Park-terrace, Bowden, and was 25 years of age in February last. He enlisted in July last, and sailed in November. Prior to enlisting he was employed at the brick-yards. He was a fine type of Australian manhood, and his cheery manner won for him a large circle of friends. Mr. and Mrs. Warner's eldest son is also at the front serving with the 32nd Battalion." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 19 Aug 1916 (nla.gov.au)
