138 Trooper James Edgar Moysey – Orbost/Buchan Killed in Action 7 August 1915
….. lost his life in the bloody battle at the Nek
Well-known local boy James Moysey, known as Edgar, had grown up at Buchan before his family moved to Orbost. He was the eldest of six children. On 21 September when he was 25 years old he joined the 8 th  Light Horse and on 25 February sailed on the Star of Victoria with the Evans boys and John Winnett for Egypt. On 11 April he was admitted to hospital with bronchitis but was well enough to leave with his fellow East Gippslanders when they sailed on 16 May. Together with the Evans boys and John Winnett, James lost his life in the bloody battle at the Nek in the early hours of 7 August. He is remembered on several East Gippsland Memorials.
This telegram informing family of Edgar’s death is within his NAA file in Canberra.
