Edward Frederick Robert Bage
Edward Frederick Robert Bage (1888 – 7 May 1915) was an engineer in the Royal Australian Engineers, and a polar explorer. He joined the army in 1909 after graduating at university with civil engineering. He participated in Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition in 1912, where he served as astronomer, recorder of times and assistant magnetician, for which he was awarded the King's Polar Medal in 1915. He was then commissioned to serve in World War One, and was killed only twelve days after the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli, while marking out a trench line near Lone Pine, when he and his companions came under fire from five Turkish machine guns.
