Page 2 of The Richmond River Herald of Tuesday 29 June 1915 contained the following entry:- Fallen on the Field of Honor “The painful news reached Coraki on Thursday evening of the death at the front of Private D.H. Scott, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. D. Scott, of Coraki. “Dug” as he was familiarly called by a large circle of friends here, was the first Coraki district lad to die of wounds, and the telegram, which reached the Rev. D. Finlayson (to whom fell the painful duty of breaking the news to the boy’s parents) came as a shock to all who knew the young hero. It is some years since (the) deceased left Coraki, going first to Molong, where he was employed by Mr. G. Burgess, and afterwards to Cooma. When the war broke out, however, he was in Brisbane with his brother Cliff, and enlisting, went to the front with the 18th battalion, the Second Expeditionary Force. A fine athlete, and sturdy young Australian, Douglas had the makings of a first class soldier, and his untimely end at the early age of 21 is to be genuinely deplored. Widespread sympathy is felt for the parents and family in the sacrifice that has been demanded of them by the inexorable god of war. At St. Mary Magdalene’s Church of England Sunday evening, the rev. A. S. Homersham referred in feeling terms to the sorrow that had fallen on the deceased soldier’s home, and said that the sympathy and prayers of the congregation went out to the family circle in their sad bereavement. On Sunday next the Rev. D. Finlayson will conduct an In Memoriam service at the Coraki Presbyterian Church, in connection with the death of Private Scott.”

The In memoriam service was duly reported on page 2 of the Richmond River Herald on Tuesday 6 July 1915 as follows:- “A memorial service in connection with the death, at the front, of Private D. H. Scott, was held at the Coraki Presbyterian Church last Sunday evening, when the building was packed to overflowing, even though a large amount of extra seating accommodation had been provided. In connection with the service there was also a voluntary parade of Light Horse, militia and cadets, about 35 of whom were present, accompanied by Capts. C. J. McRae and E. T. Sheridan, Lieut. Lang, and Sergt. D. J. Cameron. The pulpit was draped with black, and a large Union Jack. The hymns for the evening were “Onward Christian Soldiers”, “Lead Kindly Light”, and “Oh Happy Band of Pilgrims”. The Rev. D. Finlayson, who took for the text the words “greater love hath no man than this, that a man shall lay down his life for his friends”, illustrated the death of our Saviour as exemplifying the text, and said that the Devine example was an inspiration to all of us in a crisis like the present. On the battlefields of Europe our kith and kin were laying down their lives in thousands for our sakes, and the sacrifice was sweeping away our best and noblest. The reality of the sacrifice had come to us in Australia and lately had come home to us in Coraki. With sad and sorrowful hearts they did honor that night to the memory of one of the fallen heroes - the late Pte. D. H. Scott. He had given his life – the best gift any man can give - for his King and country, and for the cause of freedom, the supreme cause for which the Empire had gone to battle. He regretted he had never met the young man and, therefore, could not speak of his personal qualities, but this he could say of him – that he held not back from offering his services to his King and Empire. In this great crisis of his nation’s history, in her hour of danger, he had heard the call, and shrank not from making the great sacrifice. He went forth to meet the foe, and, in striking a blow for freedom and justice, gave up his young life, and gave it for you and for me. The brave young soldier now sleeps his last sleep far from his native land, far from kith and kin, far from all who knew and loved him, but to the cemetery near the shores of that land swept by the blue waters of the Mediterranean, where so many other fallen heroes are sleeping, our thoughts go out, and we pause to lay a tribute of sorrow and respect upon his distant grave. He prayed that we may do this as men – as men who feel we hear him calling to us to take up the task which all too soon had fallen from his nerveless hand, and for which he so nobly died. Their sympathy went out to the bereaved, and they prayed that the Almighty God, who is also God of Compassion, may soften the blow with the power of His love and enable then to say, Thy will be done”.
