Mrs. E. Henderson, of Gypsum street, Railway Town, has been informed by the military authorities that her husband, Lance-Corporal George Henderson, previously reported missing, has now been reported killed in action in France on April 11. Lance-Corporal Henderson enlisted three years ago last October in Broken Hill. He fought on Gallipoli Peninsula, and was there wounded three times. After the evacuation of the peninsula he was sent to France. He was 39 years of age, and by trade a miner. Prior to enlisting, he worked at the South Blocks. He leaves a widow and three children, whose ages range from 4 to 9 years." - from the Broken Hill Barrier Miner 22 Nov 1917 (
