Biography

"THE LATE LIEUTENANT A. H. GALLOWAY.

Mr and Mrs. J. J. Galloway, of Harrow-road, St. Peters, have been notified that their eldest son, Lieutenant Albert Hugh Galloway, died in France from the effect of poison gas. Lieutenant Galloway left Adelaide in June, 1916. He spent most of his time at Salisbury Plain training. He left England for France early in January. He was 23 years of age, and was educated at Pulteney-street school, and afterwards joined the firm of John Martin & Co. He was in their employ up to the time of his enlistment. He was of a jovial disposition, and was much liked by all who knew him. He left a widow and two children. His brother, Private L. J. Galloway, left for the front last month." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 17 Mar 1917 (nla.gov.au)
