E H Ward 6106/Mrs J E Scarlett/Red Cross
Mrs Jane Elizabeth Scarlett (nee Keyes) was the mother of Edward Herbert WARD. Edward's father was also named Edward, and was Police Magistrate at Birdsville when Edward Jnr was born about 1885. He was their only son, I believe. Edward Snr died in 1896, Jane re-married in 1897. There is a portrait image of Edward Jnr in uniform in the Queenslander newspaper, 30 June 1917, page 27, and this is available through Qld State library. He was KIA 10 June 1918 in France, and is on the Roll of Honour in Muttaburra, Qld, from where he enlisted in January 1916.
