McKellar, John Carlyle (Jack) (1888–1917)

from Shepparton Advertiser (Vic)

Many people in Shepparton will regret to hear that Sergt. J. C. [John Carlyle] McKellar died of wounds in France on October 26th. At the time of enlistment he was an assistant teacher at the Shepparton State school, and prior to his departure from the town the school children were drawn up in the large quadrangle, addresses were delivered by Mr. J. B. Brunton (then head master), by members of the school committee and others. Presentations were made to him, and his worth as a teacher and his popularity were generally acknowledged. The deceased soldier was a good athlete, and he was a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church Cricket Club. A brother of his, Pte. Duncan McKellar (previously reported missing), died in Germany on April 11th. Their parents, Mr and Mrs John McKellar, reside at Ballangeich, and are well known in the Warrnambool district.
