Burmester, Edmund Field (Ted) (1917–1941)

GERALDTON, Thursday.

Private Edmund Field Burmester, was 23, a son of Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Burmester, of Snowden-street, Geraldton. Before enlistment he was in the employ of the local branch of Frank Manford Limited, as accountant. On his final leave last March he was married to Miss Catherine Elizabeth Christie, daughter of Mr. E. E. Christie, the local manager of Manford's. Burmester had figured prominently in hockey and football teams and left Geraldton with the first contingent in October, 1939. Although in the official records Burmester was ranked as a private, advice had been received in recent letters that at the time of his death he was acting as sergeant.
