6 May 1915, Essendon Gazette

 

GOULDING. S. J., Cpl.. 7th Batt. (M.-Gun Sec.); s. of James and Florence E. Goulding, ''Simla" Wordsworth-st , Moonee Ponds; at Ascot Vale, Sept. 2. 1895: educ. Ascot Vale High S. and SS.: clerk: enl. Moonee Ponds, Aug. 12. 1914. War service: Egypt: Gallipoli. Cpl. Goulding fell at the Landing, April 25, 1915.

 

Lieut. Stewart Whitelaw wrote to Mr. Goulding, sen.: "Your boy. 'the Little Corporal,' as we called him, never landed at Gallipoli. We got safely through a fairly heavy shrapnel fire, but just as we touched the beach the snipers got us. I here lost five men - your son among them. He was hit while in the boat, as near as I could see, through both cheeks. He returned in the boat to the ship. Your boy was a very fine little fellow, very smart and dependable, and it was greatly due to his assistance that the section reached the high pitch of efficiency it did. Though he never had a chance to 'go' at the enemy, his work still lives in the section, which, under Lieut. Barker, I hear, is still doing very well."

 

Writing to his father, Mr. John C. Teare. of the well-known firm of Bennie, Teare & Co., Mr. Phillip Teare, in reference to Cpl. Goulding, states: "Col. Elliott, of the 7th Batt., had a very good opinion of him, and said that as their machine-gun officer for the batt. (a Duntroon chap) had been killed, had Stanley lived he would have got his place and a commission, so he must have done very well." Capt. Hemingway wrote: "I cannot speak too highly of your son's character, manner and smartness all the time he was under my charge; there is only one consolation-the boy has done what he thought best and right, and he has died the death of a brave Australian hero. I am proud to think that I had the honour of his company in my winning team."

 

Mr. A . H. Williams, 6 Hotham-gr., Elsternwick, Cpl. Goulding's schoolmaster, paid the following tribute to the memory of his gallant pupil: "Stan was one of my most promising scholars, and as I watched him passing through his classes and reaching the highest place. I felt he was a boy to be proud of. It seemed to me that he had a brilliant career before him, but God has ruled otherwise, and our boy's sun has gone down while it is yet day. Our consolation is that he has given his life for his country and died in the cause of right, showing the world what Australians can do, and giving other Australians all example. I have other boys at the front, but while it is not fair to make comparisons, I feel as if one of the very best has gone first."  He was an enthusiastic oarsman, being a member of the Essendon Rowing Club, and belonged to the Essendon Hockey Club. He belonged to St. Thomas' Church of England, Essendon, and the Young Men's Society. He was engaged on the staff of Bennie, Teare & Co. Mr. John Teare wrote to Mr. Goulding, sen., with reference to his son: "The photo. will always remind me of a good son and a faithful as well as a brilliant employe."

"The knowledge that out in Egypt,
preparing for the final struggle, are seven-
teen members of our branch, with many
members from other branches, and that other
members have sons there, and that many
other Church lads have also gone—that all
these have so nobly responded to the call of
their King and country, and are foremost in
this great enterprise, fills us with pride, and
calls us to unstinted prayer. The names of
the volunteers from the parish have been
placed in the Church porch. The members
of the branch on active service are :-F.
