Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of William and Ann HOGARTH, Balgownie, Cambooya, Queensland

Mr. A. F. Hogarth whose death from pneumonia is reported from Egypt, had a farm near Maryvale up to the date of his enlistment. He was a popular and unassuming young fellow,  and his death is regretted by many acquaintances in the Maryvale country. He was one of three brothers who joined the Expeditionary Forces, all members of the well-known Hogarth family of Balgownie station.
