Mrs. Hannah S. Woodward, relict of the late Mr. George Woodward, of Wentworthville, where she has resided since 1885 and still resides, has displayed remarkable patriotism in the course of this great world struggle. Apart from being a great patriotic worker her self — being associated with every war movement in her district — she has allowed four of her six sons to go to fight for the continuance of that liberty and safety which she and her family have always enjoyed. 

Private Harry Woodward, the 3rd son, followed his brothers on 25 October, 1916, on the “Ascanius” with the 34th Battalion. In October 1917, he sustained a compound fracture of the right arm following the explosion of a shell.
