Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of  Donald and Emily Mary McVICAR, 'The Sands', Trunkey Creek, New South Wales.

McVICAR.—In loving remembrance of our dear son and brother, who died of wounds in France June 28, 1918, Pte. H. W. McVicar, 3rd Battalion, aged 26 years and 8 months.
He sleeps not in his native land,
But under foreign skies,
Far from those who loved him,
In a hero's grave he lies.
He never shunned his country's call,
But gladly gave his life— his all,
He died the helpless to defend,
An Australian soldier's noble end.
Inserted by his loving -mother and father, sisters and brothers.
