Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Edwin Stanhope Sautelle and Lizzie Sautelle, of Cliff Cottage, Salisbury St., Watson's Bay, New South Wales

Gunner Sautelle, A.F.A., killed in action in France, after two years' service with the A.I.F., was the eldest son of Alderman Sautelle, ex Mayor of Vaucluse and a partner in the business of E. S. Sautelle, of Pitt-street, city. Gunner Sautelle was educated at North Sydney Church of England Grammar School, and represented his school in the aquatic carnivals. Alderman Sautelle has been prominent in recruiting and Red Cross work since the beginning of the war, and is associated with many of the patriotic movements of the campaign. At a meeting of the combined recruiting committees of Wentworth and East Sydney a resolution expressing deep sorrow with the parents of the dead soldier was carried, on the motion of Messrs. Victor Cohen and Higgs, of East Sydney.
