Halloran, Clifford Robert (1892–1915)

Mr. Horace Halloran, of the Chief Secretary's office, received a cable this morning stating that his son, Trooper C. R. L. [Clifford Robert Lang] Halloran, of the 6th Light Horse, died of wounds on September 7. The deceased was the eldest of a family of three, and was well known in journalistic and football circles. Except for a period of a few months, when he was attached to the Daily Telegraph, Trooper Halloran was connected with the Sun for about six years. His articles from Egypt and the front, published in this paper, made him widely known.

In a letter to his father, written on August 14, Trooper Halloran described the manner in which he received his wounds. Three soldiers had gone down to the base to obtain fresh supplies, and Halloran was in the act of filling his water-bottle when a shell burst close to the party, killing one of his mates straight out and wounding him in the body. He was removed the 19th General Hospital in Alexandria, and was reported to be progressing favorably on September 5.
