Biography contributed by Katherine Vander

"Mrs. H. Jenkins, Lower Turner's Marsh, has received official advice that her son, Signaller H. C. Jenkins, had been killed in action. The deceased, who was amongst the early enlistments, saw active service on Gallipoli. His father is now on active service, being attached to the Mining Corps." - from the Launceston Examiner 17 May 1916 (nla.gov.au)
