Private Percy James Gore, of the 50th Battalion, younger son of Mr. and Mrs. F. J Gore, Port Lincoln, was killed in action in France on April 25. He was born at Summertown on November 29, 1893, and was educated at the Uraidla school. He removed with his parents 12 years ago to the Port Lincoln district. He enlisted in October 1916, left Australia in December, and was sent to France the following June. Private Gore was popular in his district as a singer, as he possessed a fine baritone voice. He also excelled in tennis and football. He was a member of the Big Swamp Methodist Church. His only brother, Lance-Corporal F. V. Gore, severely wounded, has been invalided home.
