"Lieut. Munro

The late Lieut. Munro was born at Kilkenny 21 years ago. He was educated at the Woodville Public School, and was subsequently at Alberton as a training teacher. After that he spent three years at the Adelaide High School, and then returned to Alberton for another 12 months. The deceased officer took a most creditable course at the University of Adelaide. He passed the Higher Public with credit, and was about to study for the B.A. degree when the war broke out, and he enthusiastically volunteered his services. Lieut. Munro was Assistant Secretary and Librarian at the Kilkenny Congregational Sunday School, and was a member of the tennis club." - from the Adelaide Observer 08 May 1915 (nla.gov.au)
