Williams, Henry Stuart (1892–1918)

by Colin Choat

Henry Stuart Homer Williams (1892-1918), known as Stuart, was the youngest son of Allan Williams (d.1931) and Harriot Williams (nee Homer), and brother of Edward Homer Williams (1885-1915), Edith Williams, Allan Crowther Williams (1889-1976), and Elsie Williams. In 1917, he was working as a stockman on his parents' property, Burrenbring, near Nebo, Queensland, when he followed his brother, Edward, and volunteered for service in the artillery in World War I. The unmarried Williams went to England, then to France where he transferred to the infantry as a member of the 38th Battalion, AIF, in response to an urgent call for volunteers. In April 1918, near Villiers-Brettoneux, he died of gunshot wounds to the head.
