Rank Private Unit 3rd Battalion Australian Commonwealth Horse, Tas Date of Death 2 August 1902
Service Number 2065

Service Colonial Military Forces

Place of Death At sea
Service Number 2065   Cause of Death Died of illness

Son of Mr. W Cundy of Ballarat but born in Hobart and was only a little over 20 years of age when he died of pneumonia. 

A letter from his employer W.F.Read stated the following

“Cundy worked for me for two years, and a better or more reliable lad I never knew.  He was a member of the Sorell Detachment “D” Company, First Battalion, Tasmanian Infantry Regiment, and was always regular at drill.  He tried to get a place in some of the earlier contingents.  He was born in Hobart about twenty years ago but of his parents I can say nothing.  He was such a really good lad that I would have kept his place for him for any length of time.  The memorial to Cundy and Hodgman (at Sorell) was erected by the members of the contingent to which they belonged”.
