Mazure, Léon Edmond (1860–1939)

The death occurred on Saturday at the age of 78 of Mr. Leon Edward Mazure who was formerly a well-known wine expert and vigneron of wine expert of Magill. He retired to Victor Harbor some years ago and lived there until recently.

About 24 years ago Mr. Mazure had a remarkable escape from death, being the sole survivor of a motor tragedy in which Mrs. E. H. Lute and Mr. R. H. Trezize were fatally injured. The party was returning from an inspection of Tatachilla vineyards, near McLaren Vale, when a collision with a train occurred at a level crossing on the Willunga road.

A son, Mr. E. E. Mazure, was twice wounded while fighting with the 32nd Battalion.
