Biography contributed by Peter Crane

"THE LATE PRIVATE S. C. ROE.

The late Private Sydney Clarence Roe was the youngest son of Mr. Henry Roe, of Stirling West. He was born at Upper Sturt and brought up in the Upper Sturt and Stirling districts. On August 26 last he was 20 years of age. He possessed an excellent physique and was deservedly popular because of his genial disposition. He went away with the 2nd Reinforcements about seven months ago, and became attached to the 10th Battalion. He was killed in action on July 14. One of his brothers has gone to the front, and a brother and brother-in-law are now in camp." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 28 Aug 1915 (nla.gov.au)
