Below is Page 4 from the West Coast Recorder of 23 February 1916. This is the weekly news paper which was printed in Port Lincoln and serviced the whole of the Eyre Peninsular. It was a recruiting ground for 3rd and 9th LHRs along with the 50th Infantry Battalion. In an effort to understand why their menfolk were no longer around, these sort of articles aimed to let everyone know that the experience of loss was shared throughout the region. It didn't make it any easier to cope with the loss but these articles tended to reduce the isolating experience by advertising the names of the families who shared similar feelings of grief.
