Studio portrait of 868 Private (Pte) Frederick James Adams. Originally from Rotherham, England, Pte Adams was a fruit grower from Mildura, Victoria prior to enlistment and embarked with H Company, 8th Battalion from Melbourne on HMAT Benalla on 19 October 1914. On 25 April 1915 he was killed in action at Gallipoli and buried in the Shell Green Cemetery, Gallipoli, Turkey. On the same day his brother 1127 Pte Edgar Robert Colbeck Adams was reported as missing in action and although he was assumed to have been a prisoner in Turkish hands no trace of him has ever surfaced.
