"Military Notes

Mr and Mrs Bosel, Creek Road, received a telegram from Base Records, Melbourne, stating that their son, Private Charlie F. Bosel, is dangerously ill, from gunshot wounds in the head." - from the Maryborough Chronicle 01 Nov 1916

A telegram was received from Base Records of Saturday conveying the sad information of the death of Private Charlie F. Bosel, in a hospital in France from gunshot wounds received in action, and the sad tidings were broken to the parents Mr and Mrs W. Bosel, Creek Road, by the Rev. Hamlyn Harris. The deceased, who was in his 26th year, was born at Tinana, and was the fourth son of the family. He was educated at the Tinana State School, and resided at Tinana with his parents until about four years ago when he went to Longreach, where he was engaged in horse-breaking and station work up to the time of his enlistment at Rockhampton in September 1915. He sailed from Australia on 28th March 1916. He was a fine young fellow, and his death, though gallantly suffered in the cause of the Empire, will be mourned by a wide circle of friends, and much sympathy will be felt by them for the bereaved parents and family. He was a brother of A. Jacobi (Maryborough); Mrs W. Christopherson (Double Island Point); Mrs H. Pohlmann (Yengarie); Mrs F. Dittmann (Yerra); Mrs W. Howes (Cordalba); Mrs C. McPherson (Maryborough); Misses Freda Laura and Ida (Maryborough), William and Frank (Maryborough), and Albert and Ferdinand (Wondai). It will be remembered that at Tinana State School last year on Arbor Day some 26 trees were planted in the grounds in remembrance of the Tinana boys, who had gone to the front for King and country, and one of these was named after the deceased." - from the Maryborough Chronicle 06 Nov 1916
