Christian Brothers College Yearbook 1917

Page 77 of the 1917 CBC Yearbook contains the following dedication:
"Much sympathy was felt with Mr. and Mrs. Hogan, of Canning Street, Glenelg, when the news was announced that their son, Charles had been killed on the 24th of March 1917. The Catholic Chaplain to the 50th Battalion in a letter to Mrs. Hogan said that her son had been to Confession and Communion before coming to the trenches, and had received absolution again shortly before his death. As he lived so he died. 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.' R.I.P."
