Biography

"In the Battle Zone

Pte. John Taylor Throwden, Berrima, has been killed in action. A cablegram reached Mrs. W. Dodd, of Robertson, on Saturday last informing her of the death in action of her second son, James, who had been fighting for his Empire for the past nine months. Luck had previously favored him, as on a former occasion he had been blown clean out of a dug-out unharmed. The deceased was a promising young man, and much regret is felt that he has been called upon to pay the supreme sacrifice." - from the Bowral SOuthern Mail 17 Aug 1917 (nla.gov.au)
