Biography

"ANTONIO.— Killed in action at the Dardanelles, 28th September, Private Jack Antonio, fourth son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Antonio, Taradale, after four months in trenches.

To take a noble part;

There was no fear of danger, 

In his loyal and brave young heart." - from the Melbourne Age 13 Nov 1915 (nla.gov.au)
