Honouring Private Beck

FOR years a framed picture of Private Irvine Samuel Beck has been on the wall of the Cunliffe Uniting Church Sunday School.

Now community members have erected a road sign leading to his family home in his honour, as Anzac Day (tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25) marks the 100th anniversary of his death.

Pte Beck was the youngest of Heber John and Susan Beck’s nine children.
