    Brisbane Courier (Qld), Thursday 29 March 1917, page 7 "WANT ALL THE REINFORCEMENTS WE CAN GET." Mr F. B. Newell, of Sutton, Shaw-street, Auchenflower, has received a letter from his son, F. B. Newell, (quartermaster), who has seen service at Gallipoli, and is now somewhere in France, stating that at the time of willing he was in a dugout, and well. "This winter is the worst for many years," he writes, "and it is a marvel how our chaps are standing it so well. We want all the reinforcements we can get, dad, but the people in Australia seem to be of the opinion that we have plenty and require no more. I assure you we want heaps more yet; the more we get the sooner the war will end." Telegraph (Brisbane, Qld), Thursday 21 March 1918, page 4 Personal Notes. Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Newell, Shaw street, Auchenflower, have received a cablegram announcing that their Lieutenant F. B. Newell, has been awarded the Military cross and likewise has been promoted to the rank of captain. Captain F. B. Newell, M.C., who is not yet 26 years of age, joined as a private, and left Brisbane four weeks in the early part of May, 1915 as corporal. He has been on active service ever since. He is an original Anzac, and was for three months at Gallipoli.
