Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Daughter of Benjamin JEREMIAH and Anne Janet nee MILLS

Married Private Percy William EASTON of the 21st Battalion by 1933

Following in his parents' footsteps, Private Gwilyn Easton, is now serving abroad where his mother and father played their part in the last war. Mrs. Easton, who is here seen reading a letter from her son, was a nurse, and her husband was in the 21st Battalion. Private Easton's photo is to be seen on the mantel piece. Similar photos of mothers in Tasmania who were nurses in the last war, and who now have soldier sons will be published in "The Examiner' Women s Supplement, if the photos together with particulars are sent to "The Examiner.
