Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Francis and Mary Elizabeth Mycock, of Maryborough, Queensland

CANBERRA. May 19.—All military personnel aboard the Centaur were members of the Army Medical Corps. This assurance was given to-night by Mr. Curtin, who announced the  receipt of the following message from London, from tbe Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs: "My colleagues and I are greatly shocked at the sinking of the Centaur. Please  accept my deepest sympathy with Australia in this tragic loss of life."
A message from New Zealand stated the people there were greatly shocked at the inhuman, diabolical, and wanton act.
