THE LATE PRIVATE C. L. SCHRADER.
Private C. L. Schrader, of the 16th Battalion, whose death was officially reported on December 8, was killed in action on November 20 at Gallipoli. He was the elder son of Mr. C. H. E. Schrader, Kensington-road, Rose Park, and was born at Yorketown in 1895, thus being 20 years and 9 months when he made the supreme sacrifice.
He received his education at the Rose Park and Norwood schools, and later at the A.S.and B.T. Academy. From there he entered the Executor, Trustee, and Agency Company, and remained there until he enlisted, a period of six years. He was held in the highest esteem by those over him, and all his fellow clerks.
He was a keen and valued worker at St. Theodore's Church, Rose Park, His offices were many, and were carried out capably and with satisfaction to all. He was cross-bearer, altar server, sidesman, assistant secretary of the catechism, and a valued member of the C.E.M.S. and the Church Guilds. On the Sunday after news was received of his death, a special service in his memory was held at St. Theodore's. It was of most impressive character, and was largely attended by his many friends and co-workers. About twenty of St. Theodore's congregation have gone to the front, some of whom have been there for over a year. Private Schrader was the last to go, having left Adelaide on September 21, and the first to be killed, having laid down his life for King and Empire in under two months from the day he left.
