Son of Eber George and Mary Ellen Hart

"Alfred Joseph Memorial Prize" awarded to Dux of Trinity Grammar School

Mrs. G.C. Arnold, a member of the council of Trinity Grammar School, Kew, on Saturday received a cablegram announcing the death in action in France of Lieut. A.J. Hart, who prior to enlistment was one of the masters of the school.  When made known in Kew yesterday, the news was received with keen regreg by a large number of those who had attended the school, by whom Mr. Hart was greatly esteemed.

Mrs Anderson, hon. secretary of the Red Cross Society, has just received word that her brother, Lieutenant A. J. Hart is reported as killed in action. The late Lieutenant Hart received his education in the Toowoomba Grammar School, where he passed the junior and senior university examinations. At the time of his enlistment he was assistant master  at the Church of England Grammar School, Kew, Victoria.
