"THE LATE PRIVATE T. HULL.

Another good Soldier has given his life for his country in Private Thomas W. Hull, who recently died of wounds received in action. He was the second son of Mr. John Hull, of Cungena, and was 25 years of age. A good horseman and a man of a bright and cheery disposition, he will be mourned by a large circle of friends. He enlisted in the Light Horse, and afterwards was drafted into the pioneers. He took up droving as a lad, taking a mob of mixed horses from the Gawler Ranges to Port Augusta single-handed. He also worked on the survey of railways from Minnipa Hill to Cape Thevenard, and on the East-West line in the contract survey as far as Kingoonya." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 27 Jan 1917 (nla.gov.au)
