Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE H. GLADWELL

The late Private H. Gladwell, whose death from wounds received in action on July 20 was announced recently, was a native of London. He followed the calling of a sea-man for a number of years. He was a member of the crew of the steamer Matatua when that vessel picked up the crew of the steamer Haversham Grange, which was burnt in mid-ocean. Private Gladwell was also aboard the Star of Japan when that vessel was wrecked off the west coast of Africa. For the last four years Private Gladwell had resided in Glanville, and was liked by all who knew him. A widow and two children are left." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 26 Aug 1916 (nla.gov.au)
