Private L. Williams, second son of Mrs. M. Williams, of Mount Gambier, was killed in action in France on November 8. He was born in Mount Gambier, and resided there until he was a young man. He joined the staff of the Mount Gambier Post-office, and later was transferred to the Adelaide office. He enlisted for active service, leaving for the front on October 27, 1915. He celebrated his 21st birthday in camp. He was a capable and conscientious official, and news of his death came as a great shock to his widowed mother and many friends." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 23 Dec 1916 (nla.gov.au)
