Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Joshua Nalder and Agnes EGGLETON

Pte. Frank L. Nalder was the youngest son of the late Mr Joshua and Mrs Eggleton, of Warrenheip, and was killed in France on 6th November. He was born at Footscray, but at an  early age he moved with the family to Warrenheip, where he resided until he was a little over 16, when in company with three brothers he left for Western Australia to follow  farming prospects and at which he was engaged until the time of his enlistment last February. He sailed in March with the 11th Reinforcement to the 28th Battalion. The deceased,  who was in his 28th year, was a bright, promising young man, and very greatly liked and respected by a large circle of friends.
