Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE A. H. WARREN.

Private A. H. Warren, who was killed in action on August 4, was 19 years of age, and the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Warren, of Water-street, Semaphore. He was educated at Lefevre Peninsula school. He enlisted on May 8, 1915, and served three months on Gallipoli until the evacuation, and was then transferred to the clerical staff at headquarters in Egypt, until leaving for France on March 14. He was wounded on June 29, and had only been in the firing line a few days when he met his death. Private Warren entered the A.U.S.N. office on leaving school, and latterly was in the town clerk's office at Port Adelaide. He was an officer in the Semaphore Congregational Sunday-school, where he will be greatly missed." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 14 Oct 1916 (nla.gov.au)
