Son of Julian and Katherine GARDINER

"THE LATE LIEUT. GARDINER was a son of Mr. Julian Gardiner, teacher in charge of King's Plains Public School, N.S.W. He was born at Bendolba, Dungog, in 1894, and prior to enlisting had charge of Ootha Public School. He left Australia in January, 1917, with the rank of sergeant, and was awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre 'for conspicuous bravery' in Belgium. Later he entered a school of instruction, and after gaining his lieutenancy rejoined his old battalion (the 20th). He was a fine stamp of man and a typical Australian soldier. He was killed in action on August 11. His father served with the Soudan contingent in 1885." - from the Sydney Mail 25 Sep 1918 (nla.gov.au)
