Mrs James Barrett, of the Caledonian Hotel, received the sad intelligence from the Base Records Office on Tuesday evening that her brother, Sergeant Alexander Reginald Sattler, had died of wounds in France on March 11. Deceased, who was 23 years of age, had
been on active service for 10 months, and had come through the big fighting at Pozieres without injury. He underwent two operations before he was finally accepted, and was formerly employed in the produce department of Messrs Jas. Moore and Co. He was a son of Mr H. J. Sattler, of "Obanvale," and two other brothers are still on active sorvice — Q.M.S. E. T. Sattler, and Bomber Arthur Sattler. The late Sergeant Satteor was a very bright, genial, and good tempered young fellow, who was a general favourite with all who knew him, and his family have received many sincere expressions of sympathy. Flags were hoisted at half-mast in town yesterday when the sad news was made known." - from the Singleton Argus 22 Mar 1917 (
