Biography contributed by John Edwards

"The sad news was received during the week that Major Hector McIntyre had been killed in action in France early this month. He was a son of Mr and Mrs H. McIntyre, former residents of the district, but now residing in East Malvern, and spent the greater part of his boyhood in Port Campbell. He left for the front over two years ago and has been engaged in a good deal of fighting since. He also went through the Boer War, attaining the rank of Lieutenant. He always had the reputation of being a very brave man and was well liked by the men under him. He was married only about a month before leaving for the front, and the deepest sympathy is felt for his young widow, and also his father and mother and the rest of the family in their bereavement." - from the Camperdown Chronicle 23 Oct 1917 (nla.gov.au)
