Selwyn Richard Noall (1894–1917)

Members of the Stock Exchange of Melbourne heard with deep regret on Saturday that their follow member Mr A. J. Noall had received official intimation that his third son, Selwyn Richard Noall, had been killed in action on March 20. Private Noall, who was 23 years of age, and educated at the Brighton Grammar School, was one of the first to enlist, and after serving on a hospital ship with the AMC came back to Australia, and was transferred to the Sixth Infanty Brigade. His two elder brothers are at present on active service in France.
