Cohen, Cecil Hope (1888–1918)

from Jewish Herald (Vic)

A cable message has been received from London announcing the death of Lieutant Cecil Hope Cohen, of pneumonia, in the Military Hospital at Catterick, Yorkshire. This gentleman, who was about thirty years of age, was the younger son of the late Mr. Justice Cohen, of Sydney. He had a very successful scholastic career at the Sydney Grammar School and the University, where he passed as a B.A. He then studied for the Bar, and was admitted as a practitioner of the Supreme Court in 1913, soon after which he acted as associate to Mr. Justice Street. He left Sydney in January, 1916, for London, where he enlisted in the Imperial Force, and became a lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery. He was engaged on active service for some months in Flanders, and was invalided to England on account of shell shock. After a considerable stay in London he again took up his military duties. Lieut. Cohen was of a happy disposition, was much liked by all who knew him, and gave every promise of attaining a brilliant future.
