'HEROES OF THE DARDANELLES.

PERSONAL NOTES.

MOUNT MORGAN, July 23.
News was received to-day to the effect that Private William George Moren, of the 2nd Light Horse, a Mount Morgan man, has been killed in action at the Dardanelles. Deceased, who was about 24 years of age, was a married man with one child. He was an exceptionally fine young fellow, and was popular with all. He was employed for some years by local butchering firms, and was one of the first to enlist from Mount Morgan.' from The Brisbane Courier 27 Jul 1915 (nla.gov.au)
