"THE LATE PRIVATE A. E. VINCE.

Mr. J. F. Vince, of Port Elliot, has been informed of the death of his second son, Private Alfred E. Vince, at the western front. He was born at Summertown some 40 years ago. He sailed from Adelaide on January 11 of this year, and for some time was engaged in trench work on the Suez Canal. In June last he left Egypt for France. He nobly did his part in the forward movement of our troops initiated in July, and always wrote cheerfully of the prospects of the campaign." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 30 Sep 1916 (nla.gov.au)
