The late Lieutenant Wareham was born at Townsville 24 years ago and at the age of 5 years came to Brisbane with his parents. He was educated at the Normal and Brisbane Grammar schools. On leaving school he entered the office of Messrs Moxon and Co, Limited, where he remained for over two years. About six years ago he joined the office staff of Messrs Dalgety and Co, Limited.

He subsequently obtained a commission in the Moreton Regiment. On expressing a desire to join the Expeditionary Force, Messrs Dalgety and Co, Limited, granted him leave of absence and he took to Heliopolis the 3rd Reinforcements for the 15th Battalion. The late Lieutenant Wareham was very popular in Brisbane and was an enthusiastic yachtsman.
