Elias Max Judell (1891–1915)

from Register

Qmr.-Sgt. Elias Max Judell, of B Squadron, 9th Light Horse Regiment, was killed in action at Gallipoli on August 9. He was the third son of Mr. L. Judell, of Northgate street, Unley Park, and was born at Orroroo. He joined the 17th Regiment of Light Horse at Orroroo some eight years ago (the regiment being then under Lieut.-Col. T. Hancock), and was a good shot and a keen horseman. After spending three years at Roseworthy College he was one of the first to take up blocks at the Pekina Creek irrigation scheme, and carried on dairying with fair success. Subsequently, when droughty conditions prevailed, he joined the well-known firm of Messrs, L. Judell & Co., and took charge of the Spalding branch of the business. Qmr.-Sgt. Judell enlisted early in September and went to Broadmeadows, Melbourne. He was 25 years of age, and was most popular, being of a very lovable disposition. A younger brother, Cedric, enlisted a few months ago, and is now in Egypt.
