Cedric Errol Brodziak (1891–1918)

from Sydney Morning Herald

News has been received by private cable of the death in France of Major Cedric E. Brodziak, who left as a lieutenant with the first contingent of troops from this State. He was badly wounded at Gallipoli, and, making what was considered a wonderful recovery, returned to Sydney, where he acted for a short period as orderly officer to the State Commandant. He was promoted to captain, and returned to active service about two years ago. He gained his majority recently, and at the time of his death was fighting with a machine-gun battalion.

He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Brodziak, of Rhodesia, Macleay-street, and was an old Sydney Grammar School boy. By profession he was an electrical engineer. His younger brother, Lieutenant Norman Brodziak, is fighting in France with the Royal Garrison Artillery.
