Curran, Edward Lawrence (1878–1917)

Mr J. F. Curran of Horsham, yesterday received word, through the Rev. Father Howell, that his brother Edward Lawrence Curran, who had previously been reported missing, was killed in action at Bullecourt on May 3. He was the last of three brothers to enlist, joining up with the A.I.F. at Gilgandra on October of last year. Thirty-nine years of age, he was a veteran of the South African war, and after peace was declared he served for three years with the South African Constabulary. Two brothers are still serving. The deepest sympathy is felt for Messrs. J.F and James Curran in their bereavement.
