Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Henry and Flora WALDOCK; Stepmother Henrietta M WALDOCK.

WALDOCK.-In sad, but loving memory of our dear brother and son, Private Eric A. Waldock, 15th Battalion, died of illness in France, 2nd July, 1918, aged 21 years.
Somewhere in France they have laid him,
A soldier so young and so brave ;
The best that Australia could offer,
Now sleeps in a hero's grave.
Inserted by his brothers and sister, and stepmother.
