    Note on file, marked 'Major 53rd Battn': 'Lieut. Pratt was killed about midnight 19/20 July in the 2nd enemy line in front of FROMELLES. He was shot through the heart and died instantly. The position was retaken by the enemy next morning and the body was not recovered.'
    Base records wrote to mother, 13 March 1925: '... I am now in receipt of advice that the Imperial War Graves Commission has been successful in recovering the remains of the later officer [A.E. PRATT] which have since been interred with every measure of care and reverence in the POZIERES BRITISH CEMETERY, Plot 3, Row H, Grave 12.'
    Statement, Red Cross File No 2190905, 2nd Lt R.T. BATTLER, C (formerly A) Company, 53rd Bn (patient, 4th Australian General Hospital, Randwick), 15 February 1918: 'I knew Pratt. We called him Bert, but his initials were "A.E." and he transferred from 1st Battalion. He was killed at Fleurbaix on 19-7/16, and his belongings have been returned with full particulars to his mother ... I cannot furnish any details of his death, except that I know he died on the field.'
    Second statement, 3169 Pte J.H. DEAN, B Company, 53rd Bn, 24 August 1916: 'I knew Mr. Pratt; he was a 2 Lt. in B. VII. and I saw him fall in the 2nd. line of German trenches at Fleurbaix, on 19.7.16, and he only lived a few minutes and I stayed with him until he died. We laid him at the back of the trench. I think he was hit in the upper part of the chest. He did not speak, nor did he seem to suffer. I think he was unconscious. I am quite sure he was dead and that it was he. He was my platoon commander. We retired from this trench at 10.30 the next morning but there was no chance of recovering his body ... '
    Third statement, 4839 Pte J.J. PRITCHARD, B Company, 53rd Bn, 28 August 1916: 'I knew Mr. Pratt; he was in No. 9 Section of B. VII. and he was shot through the chest on the night of 19th. July at Fleurbaix in a German trench. I carried him from where he was shot into a trench that I thought would be safe. I was with him until he died. He only lived about 1/2 hour and was unconscious all the time and I covered his body with a bomber's apron. We were driven out about 2 hours later and as we were being surrounded I had to leave his body there. He did not suffer nor did he regain consciousness.'
    Fourth statement, 2380 Corporal W.T. JACKSON, 53rd Bn, 9 February 1917: 'I knew Mr. Pratt ... I was wounded on about midnight of 19.7.16 at Fleurbaix and spoke to him as I was being carried out and immediately afterwards I saw him clasp his forehead with his hand and fall. I am sure it was Mr. Pratt ... This happened in the German second line of trenches ... It was moonlight at the time, but I am sure it was Mr. Pratt I saw fall.'
