    3 August 1917
    An Appreciated Paper.
    A letter from Pte. A.S. Nicolls, now in France, to this paper, mentions “Snowy” Johnson, Dave Mackay, Frank McDougall, Con Jordan, and Geo. Moody, and adds : “There are a good few of us Cairns boys in this Battalion and generally we all get together and have a gathering of the clans. We are all waiting anxiously for the time when bully and biscuits will be a thing of the past. We often get a copy of the “Herald” across here, and I can assure you there is a great demand for it among the Northern boys.”vviii Northern Herald, 3 August 1917, p. 5. Sadly, at least three of the men did not return to Cairns having died in France. They were John Conway (Con) Jordan, George (Geo.) Moody and John Francis (Frank) McDougall.iii
