"How great was the strain placed upon these young troops was only realised when the Colonel of the Deal Battalion, visiting a section of his trenches, was shot by his men, who, in a fit of spy mania, killed him, wounded three others, and slightly bayonetted Colonel McNicoll."

"At 1 a.m. on May 4 the gallant Colonel Braund on the 2nd Bn, returning to the rest camp in the scrub on Braund's Hill, met his death in a similar tragedy.  He was slightly deaf, and appears to have disregarded the challenge of one of his own sentries.  The sentry shot him."

"Braund was a member of the parliament of New South Wales for the Armidale seat.  He had lately been appointed to the command of his regiment.  He was possessed of strong ideas, a total abstainer, and a man of vigorous action.
