Lest we forget
Mr Harry Dale had left previous to the above-mentioned five leaving, and since that Messrs H. R. A. Pix, C. E. G. Sampson, and Joseph Blows proceeded to the camp at Morphettville. On Saturday last Messrs Edgar Larking, Ben Thorpe, and Victor Jeffries (the latter two from Tumby Bay), left per the Parina. This makes a total of 12 fine young men who have gone from Port Lincoln to aid Great Britain in this the greatest war the world has yet seen. Some of the boys have written to friends and wish to be remembered to all. Bob Fraser says: "Whatever happens they are all prepared to do their best and will never be shot in the back!"
