Street, Lawrence Whistler (Larry) (1893–1915)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The news of the death while in action at Gallipoli of Lieutenant Laurence [Lawrence] Whistler Street, second son of his Honor Mr. Justice Street, of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, was received with deep regret in Sydney, particularly by the Bench and members of the Legal profession, to many of whom he was personally well known. Lieutenant Street was 21 years of age, and was an officer of the 3rd Battalion of the 1st Infantry Brigade. His early education was carried out at the Sydney Grammar School, where he passed about seven years. In 1911 he entered the Sydney University, and became a resident student of St. Paul's College, taking his B.A. degree in March, 1914. Subsequently, he entered as a student at law, and became associate to his father. He volunteered for active service in August last, and was therefore among the first to show his patriotic spirit in that way. The late Lieutenant Street, who was very popular, was an enthusiastic supporter of all kinds of athletic sports, and was well-known in rowing circles. Many sympathetic messages in respect of the death of his son have been received by Mr. Justice Street.
