Franklin, Reginald Norris (1883–1919)

Major Reginald Norris Franklin, D.S.O., died at the Randwick (N.S.W.) Military Hospital last week after an operation. He was on the staff of the Bank of New South Wales at Lismore (N.S.W.) when war broke out, and at once enlisted. He saw four and a half years' service, save for a short furlough to Australia, during which he was married. He was invalided to Australia several months ago, and contracted small pox in Colombo on the voyage out. Major Franklin, who leaves a widow and infant daughter, was the elder brother of Lieutenant R. P. Franklin, head master of the Melbourne Grammar School.
