Biography

"THE ROLL OF HONOR.

Yet another of our brave fellows who have enlisted from the Gascoyne district has given his life for his country and the cause of humanity. Mr. T. Reynolds last Saturday received the sad news of the death of his brother Harry somewhere in France. Harry Reynolds was well known at Shark Bay, and resided for a short time in Carnarvon. He was liked and respected by all who knew him. His parents reside in the old country. They have now given two sons to their country, and much sympathy is felt for them even by those so far away as we are, and also for Mr. T. Reynolds in the loss of his brother." - from the Carnavon Northern Times 18 May 1918 (nla.gov.au)
