Guy Darcy Macarthur (1893–1915)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The parents of the late Lieutenant Guy Macarthur, who died of illness in Egypt on Sunday last, have received the following cable of sympathy among others from Egypt:-"Men of the 13th Battalion Transport desire to express their deepest sympathy with you in your bereavement.' - (Sgd.) Traill.

In letters received yesterday, dated 23rd ult., the late Lieutenant Macarthur stated that he was at the time of writing in command of the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th Battalion transports and the 4th and 5th Field ambulances at Maadi camp, which had been inspected by General Monash and Major Herring, who not only complimented but assured him of his promotion to a captaincy immediately upon a suitable officer being found to take his place as transport officer. He was then apparently in the best of health and spirits, for he added, "I know you will be pleased to hear of my success, and when I get back to Gallipoli I do so hope I will be able to do something great."
