Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE T. NALTY.

Advice has been received that Private Thomas Newsome Nalty was killed in action in France on August 5. Private Nalty was a dentist, having served his apprenticeship to Mr. Victor Cohen. He had the reputation of being remarkably skilful and gentle at his profession. He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles Nalty, was born at Strathalbyn, and was 30 years of age. Being of a jovial and kindly nature, he was extremely popular, especially at Glenelg, where he resided. Two brothers are serving with the colors, Sergeant-Compounder C. H. Nalty, France (who had the honor of being in the original Gallipoli landing), and Private W. A. Nalty, now in camp." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 16 Sep 1916 (nla.gov.au)
