Biography

THE LATE LANCE-CORPORAL H. STOUT.

Lance-Corporal Harry Stout, C Field Ambulance, killed in action at Gallipoli on August 21, was the eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Mrs. H. Stout, of Goldsborough, Victoria. Lance-Corporal Stout resided in South Australia for about two years before joining the Expeditionary Forces. At the time he enlisted he was employed as secretary and organiser of the South Australian branch of the Australian Freedom League. While opposed to the compulsory clauses of the Defence Act, he always recognised the need of a system of defence, and advocated the voluntary method, and, like a number of fellow members of the league, offered his services to the army when the occasion called for them. Mr. Stout was an effective platform speaker, and a writer of considerable ability. Many mourn the loss of this good friend and genial companion." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 25 Sep 1915 (nla.gov.au)
