Plaque erected in memory of Eric Mulvey who was killed in action in the Dardanelles during World War One.

Mr. G. W. Mulvey has received from Lieutenant-colonel R. M. Stoddart the following letter, referring to his son, Lance-corporal Eric Mulvey, who was killed in action at the Dardanelles:- " I regret to have to write and inform you of the unfortunate death of your son, Lance-corporal E. C. Mulvey, who was killed in action at Quinn's Hill, on the night of the 14th May, 1915, on the Gallipoli Peninsula.  A charge was made on the Turkish trenches, and was very gallantly carried out by the squadron, under Major Graham, who was himself killed. I desire to express very deep regret at his loss, and my sympathy with his relatives." 
Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW),
