Mr. T. Shaw, of Port road, Carrondown, has received news that his son, Private Hurtle Shaw, has been killed in action against the Turks. Private Shaw celebrated his 28th birthday at the Dardanelles on May 15, and his parents cabled him birthday greetings. He was one of the best known young men in Hindmarsh. He was of a lovable disposition, and had a host of friends. He was for a number of years employed by Mr. F. B. Hughes at the old Brompton Glassworks, and then entered the employ of Messrs. J. & D. Shearer at Kilkenny." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 26 Jun 1915 (
