Emb. 23rd June 1917
WIA 5th April 1918 (Bomb wound, chest). Private White was taken to 13th Field Ambulance where he died of his wounds that day.
Page 229 of Neville Brownings book "Leane's Battalion" states the following " as they marched along the Amiens to Albert road, a shell exploded amongst the column and killed Sergeant M.H. Macloy and Private N. Oma and wounded Privates S. W. Howells and H. M. Martin. Tentative roll calls revealed that CQMS F. A. Rochow, Corporal D. O. Rogers , Lance Corporals A. C. MacKenzies and J. Scott and Privates W. R. Baker, E. Blackman, S. H. Chandler, B. E. Chellew, H. M. Drummond, M. S. McCombe, T. McGowan, P. O'Sullivan, S. R. Tudor and C. J. White had also been killed during the battle."
Cecil Johnson White was a local identity of Renmark in South Australia and amongst his talents is mention of his artistic ability. With this group comes a beautiful original characterture of "The flag Lieutenant" (signed C.J.W) of which we presume is from his embarkation. Also with his original AIF booklet of his Grave, a photo of him and a single collar badge.
An impressive and emotive grouping.;
