King Charles Bernard
Born Hereford England but was 10 years old when he arrived in Tasmania a labourer living at the Carrington Hotel Wagga Wagga he embarked Sydney 9th November 1916 on board “HMAT Benalla” with the 1st Infantry Battalion.
He died 12th October 1917 from wounds and was buried in the Etaples Military Cemetery, Etaples, Nord Pas de Calais, France.
On Saturday the sad news reached here that Charles King who had spent most of his life in Scottsdale had been killed in France. The deceased was the only son of Mr. Thomas King and nephew of Mrs Charles Pinnell of Springfield with whom he had lived part of his life. Young King was a quiet unassuming young man and at one time suffered a great deal from asthma. He was, I think, about 32 years of age. Mr David S King of Ararat Victoria is an uncle of the deceased soldier.
