YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL

 

The Non-Commissioned Officers' Club of Essendon have presented one of their number, 2nd Lieutenant A. E. C. Charlwood, who has enlisted, with a money belt, accompanied by an illuminated programme, with the autographs of the officers. Captain Blair, C.O., made the presentation, and was supported by Captain John Kerr, A.O., and Staff Sergeant-Major Watt. The recipient made a fitting reply.

Another of the gallant young lives which are such a loss to the nation was given in the recent heavy fighting, when Lance-Corporal Arthur Ernest C. Charlwood, elder son of Mr. Arthur Charlwood, Essendon, fell in action. Of commanding presence, 6ft. 2in. in height, and of fine physique, although only 19 years of age, in appearance he was the ideal soldier. He was certainly an instance of the strong influence and effect of the compulsory cadet military training. Temperamentally of the artistic and refined type, from the time he began  his cadet training with the 58th Battalion Senior Cadets, its good effect was  noted. He soon worked through the ranks, and the year before he enlisted passed his examination well and was gazetted 2nd lieutenant. By a coincidence, when he enlisted in 1916 he was appointed to reinforcements for the 58th Battalion, and regarded it as a good omen.

 

He left Australia as corporal in September 1916, and had been previously wounded at Bermutz, and had only returned to France in June. He was with the Federal Union Insurance Company for a year or two before he left. From his early boyhood he was a chorister in St. Paul's Cathedral choir, where a service is to be held on Tuesday in memory of him and other boys who have fallen.

 

Lance-Corporal Charlwood was the eldest representative of the fourth generation of a Melbourne family, as his great grandfather, another Arthur Charlwood, landed here with his family early in 1850, and established the business of Charlwood and Son, printers, publishers and booksellers. This was carried on principally by his sons, the best known being Charles J. Charlwood, grandfather of the young soldier.

HONORING THE DEAD

 

 

At Evensong in St. Paul's Cathedral tomorrow, beginning at 4.45 p.m., a me
morial service in honor of old boy choristers who have fallen in battle will be
held. Among these gallant lads, andthe latest to give his life is Lance-Cor
poral Arthur Ernest C. Charlwood, elder son of Mr Arthur Charlwood, of Es-
sendon. From early boyhood he was a St. Paul's chorister, and, though only
19 years when he died, was 6ft. 2in. in height, and a fine specimen of manly
young Australian. Many will recall him as the tall, dignified boy who led
the march out. Other choristers who have fallen are J. Bowden and E. An-

 

derson.

On Saturday morning St. Paul's Day was celebrated at the Cathedral by a full choral service. In the evening the Choir Association held its annual gathering in the schoolroom,  annual gathering in the schoolroom, when the portraits of three former choir boys, Lieut's. E. Anderson and Bowden, and Lance-Corporal A. E. Charlwood, were unveiled. All three had made the supreme sacrifice in France. Lieut. Anderson was killed when rescuing wounded comrades under heavy fire. Lieut. Bowden, after long service in the firing line, was wounded and taken prisoner, and died from his injuries soon after his capture. Lance-Corporal Charlwood, who was still in his teens, had only just got back to the trenches after recovering from wounds, when he fell in action. He was the elder son of Mr. Arthur Charlwood, and nephew of Miss Emily Charlwood, the popular editress of 'Table Talk.'
