    • 'A Wanganui Hero Mourned'
      I have to record, writes our Wanganui correspondent, that another of our members has laid down his life on the altar of loyalty to King and country. Private E. Bannerman was killed in action at the Dardanelles, a place that will never be forgotten by the people of this country. Private Bannerman was a popular member of the service and the society, stationed at Wanganui on the car and wagon inspector’s staff. He was a member of the local Fire Brigade, and took a great interest in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the general community. Deploring his loss, we can take pride in the manner of his death. He and his comrades have shown that the men reared under the Southern Cross are in no way degenerate, but are worthy descendants of the warriors who fought under Wellington. To his family we tender our deep sympathy. Railway review, 30 July 1915, p 336 Public - Jenifer - Researcher - 4 September 2017 - Railway Workers Obituaries : New Zealand History :
