    “The Aust. Division to which he belonged was returning to the north of France, entraining at Amiens. Pte. Stone was on the baggage guard at this station and was hit by a piece of H.E. shell. His wound was reported to this office on the 14th April, followed by a notification of his death from wounds on 15.4.1918. At present, I am unable to obtain details of his burial, but it is certain that he was decently buried, perhaps around Amiens (W.R. Anderson, H.Q., 6 Battn., A.I.F)
