Biography

"FOGARTY.— Died on active service, No. 4522, Private T. H. Fogarty, late of Cockburn, 50th (late 32nd) Battalion, died from shell gas poisoning and bronchial-pneumonia, at the 2nd Canadian General Hospital, on the 24th October, 1917, the fourth son of the late J. Fogarty, late of Terowie, and E. Fogarty, No. 3, Owen-street, off Gilbert-street, Adelaide, aged 25 years.

He died not in his native land, But under foreign skies, Far away from those who loved him, In a hero's grave he lies. No loving mother's gentle hand, To wipe the death-dew from his brow, No token of love in that far-off land, To mark the place where he sleepeth now. —Inserted by his sorrowing mother and only sister, N. Cornwell, and four brothers, in khaki.

Years will roll and time will fly, Every leaf will fade and die, Every sun will rise and set, But our dear brother we never will forget. From memory's page time cannot blot Three little words—forget me not. —Inserted by his only sorrowing sister and brother-in-law, nieces, and nephew, N. and R. Cornwell, Ucolta, Nellie, Glory, and Jackie.

THESE HEROES ARE CALLING TO THE LIVING TO FILL THEIR PLACES AND CARRY ON THE CONFLICT AGAINST WRONG. IF YOU ARE FIT, STEP INTO THE BREACH." - from the Adelaide Advertiser 06 Nov 1917 (nla.gov.au)
