Michaelis, Grant (1895–1915)

from Argus

A private cable message has been received that Lieutenant Grant Michaelis, son of Mr and Mrs Edward Michaelis, was killed in action at the Dardenelles, on September 23. Lieutenant Michaelis, who was educated at the Church of England Grammar School, Geelong, left for England about four years ago to study engineering with Messrs Allen Bros, electrical engineers of Bedford, and when war broke out was lieutenant in the East Anglian Engineers. He at once volunteercd for active service abroad, but with his company was retained for service in England until the end of August this year, when he left for the front. He could therefore have been only a few weeks in the fighting line when he met his death.
