Maryborough and Dunolly Advertiser - Wednesday 3 October 1917

Maryborough and Dunolly Advertiser - Wednesday 3 October 1917

On Saturday last Mr and Mrs Hopper, of Argyle Street, received word that their son, Lance-Corporal Lyle G Hopper, had been dangerously wounded. On Monday they received the sad intelligence that he succumbed to his wounds. The deceased soldier had been on active service for three years last month and took part in the landing at Gallipoli with the famous 8th Battalion. Whilst on the Peninsula he was buried with four others by the explosion of a shell, and was the only one to be taken out alive. He was at the evacuation, and took part with the Australians in all their big fights in France, but had never suffered injury up till the time he sustained the gunshot wound which caused his death..
