Hepburn, Rupert Osric (1892–1915)

Great regret was expressed on the receipt of the news that Lance-Corporal Hepburn, 5th Battalion, 6th Reinforcements, A.I.F., had died of wounds received on August 9th at the Lonesome Pine fight. Rupert Oswald Hepburn was the third son of Mr. Thomas Hepburn, B. A., LL.B., who has been for many years a well-known Melbourne man, and who was previously inspector of schools, and his mother, the late Mrs. Hepburn, was a member of the Cosgrove family, well-known station owners in N.S. Wales. Two other sons are also at the Dardanelles, one of whom took part in the first landing at Gallipoli. The late Rupert Hepburn was educated at Xavier College, Kew, where he took a leading part in all sports, and where he was most popular with masters and boys. At the time of enlistment he was an esteemed member of the Melbourne branch of the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company Limited.
