Brother of Pte. 2495 William Claude Henry Jago (/explore/people/130151)


On July 29, 1916, Pte. L. F. Jago, second son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Jago of Somerset, was reported missing. Yesterday the Rev. J. Tryon Wilson, of Burnie, had the painful task of advising the relatives that Pte. Jago had now been reported officially as killed in action on that date. Pte. Jago was but a young man, and enlisted for service only 12 months before he was killed." - from the North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times 10 Aug 1917 (nla.gov.au)
