Biography

"THE LATE PRIVATE GRAHAM.

Private A. Graham, a member of one of the reinforcements for the 10th Battalion, who died of dysentry, was well known at Port Adelaide. About two years ago he joined the Adelaide police force, and after a short interval in the city was transferred to Port Adelaide, where for nearly 12 months he remained until he joined the Expeditionary Forces. Of a quiet, happy, and unassuming disposition, Private Graham, who was familiarly known as "Sandy," made a host of friends at Port Adelaide. He was about 30 years of age, and was born in Scotland, where he belonged to one of the famous Scottish regiments. His mother (Mrs. J. Graham) resides at 12, George-drive, Glasgow." - from the Adelaide Chronicle 06 Nov 1915 (nla.gov.au)
