The late Sgt. D. G. J. Badger, of Petersburg, was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert J. Badger, of that town. He enlisted, at the age of 19 years, several months after the beginning of the war, and celebrated his twentieth birth anniversary in the trenches in France in April last. He left Australia in August, 1915. The deceased was formerly connected with the E.S. and A. Bank at Petersburg and Brinkworth, and subsequently in Adelaide. He was highly esteemed among a large circle of friends." - from the Adelaide Observer 28 Oct 1916 (nla.gov.au)
