Biography contributed by John Edwards

Son of Espie and Jane WATT of Main Street, Gulgong, NSW

Embarkation Roll ( has incorrectly recorded second Christian name as NORMAN instead of THOMAS

"Three Sons Lost. MRS. E. WATT'S LOSS.

Mrs. E. Watt, of Mayne-street, Gulgong, has received official advice that her son, Private Frederick John Watt, was killed in action in France in May of last year. The fallen soldier was previously reported missing. The Watt family has made almost as great a sacrifice as any family in the State. Three sons enlisted to take part in the Empire's battles, and to-day all of them are sleeping the eternal sleep underneath the sod of foreign lands. Walter Thomas Watt gave up his life for his country on Gallipoli, and Archibald Watt died on boardship the night after the evacuation. The record is a wonderful one. Though the mother has suffered an irreparable loss, she is consoled by the thought that her boys have died brave men, giving their lives to the greatest cause in the world."from the Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative 31 Jan 1918 (
