Biography contributed by Carol Foster

Son of Silas James and Lucy Gallard of Abuklea Road, Eastwood, NSW

The Rev. H. H. Childs received on Tuesday official news from the military authorities of the death of Bert. Gallard, son of Mr. Silas Gallard of North-road, Eastwood. He was, it appears, shot in the neck in the trenches of Gallipoli, and removed to the hospital ship. Soon afterwards he succumbed to his injuries, and was buried at sea. The deceased was 22 years of age, and left for the front in March. He was a fine stamp of Australian manhood, and was universally esteemed for his many good qualities. The news of his death was received with deep regret by all who knew him.
