Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of William and Amelia McLOSKEY, 152 Grosvenor Road, North Perth, Western Australia

Husband of Theresa Mercia McLoskey, 6 Smyth Road, West Subiaco, Western Australia

Employed by Monteith Bros, Subiaco prior to enlistment

Corporal C. L. McLoskey, who has been killed in France, was the first to enlist from Monteith Brothers' foundry, Subiaco, and his name heads the honour board in the office of the firm. He was an excellent fellow, and those who knew him regarded him as a staunch friend. He is a brother to Mrs. O. R.  O'Neill, of Victoria Square, and to Mr. W. J., Keogh, of Maylands, and Mrs. F. Hogan, of East Perth, to whom we tender our heartfelt sympathy.
