Stanley (Stan) McLennan (1895–1917)

Corporal Stan. McLennan has laid down his life for his country. The sad news was conveyed to his father at Bibbenluke, Mr. W. McLennan, on Monday, last. Stan, was a fine young man, 22 years of age and and at the time of enlistment was in the service of the Bank of New South Wales of Cooma. It is two and a half years since he joined the military forces, and since then he has seen a lot of fighting. He was through the Gallipoli campaign, and was first wounded there in September, 1915. When the Australians were sent to France, Corporal Stan. McLennan went with them, and there in November, 1916„ at Mouquet Farm, he was wounded the second time. He had barely recovered from his wound when he was sent back to the trenches, there to meet his death. Much sympathy will he felt for Mr. McLennan and the sisters and brothers of the deceased soldier.
