Brother of 1926 Pte. Herbert Chadban (/explore/people/241883) who was killed in action in France on 04 May 1917

"Died from Wounds.

Constable Henry Chadban, who enlisted from Newcastle, where he was stationed for some months, died on August 18th of wounds received at the Dardanelles. His parents live at Stroud. He was the first member of the Newcastle branch of the Australian Natives Association to be killed, although about thirty members have enlisted, a great many of whom are already at the front. At a meeting of the branch this week, a special minute was passed, appreciatively recording Mr. Chadban's services, and the mortuary allowance of £20 was passed for payment to his next-of-kin." - from the Maitland Daily Mercury 02 Oct 1915 (nla.gov.au)
