Hodges, Edward Norman (1886–1918)

from Argus (Melbourne)

Sincere sympathy will be felt for Sir Henry Hodges on account of the death, in France, of his second son, Lieutenant Edward Norman Hodges. The news was conveyed to Sir Henry Hodges yesterday by the Chief Justice (Sir William Irvine). Sir Henry was engaged in a case in the Supreme Court, which was immediately adjourned. Lieutenant Hodges, who was educated at the Melbourne Grammar School and Trinity College, graduated LL.B. at the Melbourne University in 1908. He was practising as a barrister when war broke out, and he enlisted. Recently information was received that Lieutenant Hodges had been awarded the Military Cross. The cable message states that the cause of death was pneumonia and arthritis. Lieutenant Hodges leaves a widow, the daughter of Mr. W. J. T. Clarke.
