      Obituary in Wairapa Daily Times 16 August 1917. KILLED IN ACTION.
      The sad news reached Masterton this morning that a very popular Mastertonian, Sergeant Jack Coradine, had been killed in action. Deceased left with one of the early contingents and saw particularly heavy fighting in France. He was a typical soldier, and his work at the front was earning for him the highest praise of his superior officers. The deceased was the second son of Mr and Mrs J. M.Coradine, of Masterton, and conducted a very successful business in Masterton as barrister and solicitor, subsequently taking Mr W. Noble as a partner. The deceased showed brilliant ability as a law student and passed his examinations with high honours before he was 21 years of age. The late Sergeant Coradine was closely connected with the sports and pastimes of the town. He took a leading part in the work of the Wairarapa Amateur Athletic Club, and was at one time its secretary. With all whom he came in contact with deceased was very popular and his death will be deeply deplored. To Mr and Mrs Coradine will be extended the sympathy of the whole of the Wairarapa in their sad bereavement. Public - Allana - Other Relative - 5 April 2015 - Papers Past, BDM historical database
