Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

He was reckoned one of the best scouts and bushman in his regiment and a crack shot. And his record stands high in his Battalion. Sgt Edgar was a special type of Australian manhood. His desperation and courageous manner he endeared himself of officers and men of the Regiment. He has been an exceptionally keen and resourseful soldier and by his quiet heroism and devotion to duty has made a name which will live in the history of the 10th Reg. "Report of C.O."
