Reply to an enquiry about the death of 4412 J W Elliott of 21 Inf Bn.   KIA 30.3.17


Re 4412 J W Elliott 21st Battn AIF.  I beg to inform you that I was personally acquainted with him for many years previous to the outbreak of War.  I was alongside of him when he was killed at Longatte on the 20.3.17.  He was given a soldier's burial in a place 200 yards west of the German Cemeteries.  I saw the grave on a later occasion when passing, and his rifle with his name thereon was marking the grave.

Owing to a previous agreement between us I forwarded his pocket book with all private papers and photos of himself and sisters to his people, residing at 75 Railway Place, Ascot Vale, Victoria, which I hope arrived safely.
