Edward Barry Graham (1890–1917)

Mrs. E. B. Graham, of Park View, Condobolin, has been notified by the Defence Department of the death of her husband, Private Edward Barry Graham, of wounds, on October 8. He was the youngest son of Mrs. Graham, of Parramatta, and late of Orange, and was a grandson of the late John Fitzgerald, of the Mulgan. He was educated at Patrician Brothers' School, Orange, and entered the railway service, where, prior to enlisting in May, 1915, he was an engine driver on the Western line. He left Australia in July of the same year with the 7th Reinforcements, 2nd Battalion. After serving in Gallipoli for some time he took part in the evacuation, and after resting in Egypt, was drafted to France as an Anzac bomber, where he fought in some of the severest battles for 18 months. His nephew, Private Walter Lynch, of Nyngan, was killed in action on June 7, at Bullecourt, and a brother-in-law is still serving. He was well known, and a general favourite in the western district, where his boyhood was spent. Mr. John Graham, of Stanmore, and Miss Graham, of Randwick, are brother and sister of the deceased soldier. He leaves two infant daughters and a young widow to mourn their loss. — R.I.P.
