Born 13th April 1891 Southport Tasmania to William and Margaret Isabella Knight (nee Gray) a bushman who departed Hobart 1st July 1916on board “HMAT Berrima” with the 40th Infantry Battalion.

He was killed in action 13th January 1917 at Armentieres and is commemorated in the Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery, Armentieres, France.


I regret to have to record the death of one of our Raminea soldiers. Private Tas. Knight was killed in action on the Western front. Tas. was a young man who was very highly respected by all who knew him. Until his departure from Raminea he was a teacher in the undenominational Sunday School. He was for some time a member of the band and was a member of the band committee from the formation until his departure. His father Councillor Wm. Knight of Verston Strathblane and all the family have the sincere sympathy of all the community
