  • Private G. McCullogh, 3rd Battalion, AIF, in forwarding the following verses writes: My comrade, George - , fell on Gallipoli whilst engaged in a bayonet attack. After the charge I found his body, and gave it a decent burial. He joined the forces without his mother knowing. I often wonder if she has ever guessed the truth. Some day someone may tell her how nobly her son fell doing his duty.' - Sydney Mail, 26 July, 1916
