The late Pte. Arthur Hollow was bom in Waymouth street, Adelaide, in 1892, and was educated at Currie and Pulteney Street Schools. He served his apprenticeship with Messrs. T. Dawson & Sons as an ironworker, where he worked until his enlistment in 1915. He left Australia in January of the following year. In France he saw nine months' service and was wounded twice. He was sent to England with slight wound and frostbite, and when he was leaving hospital he contracted fever. On recovering he again left for France, where he was killed in action on October 15. He was a member of Pirie Street Sunday School, and a keen supporter of St. Luke's Cricket and Football teams. He was also an active member of the Albert District of Rechabites, and was at the time of his departure for the front assistant superintendent of juveniles." - from the Adelaide Observer 17 Nov 1917 (
