Mr. David Andrews, of Partridge street, Glenelg, whose death occurred recently, was a native of Ireland. He arrived in South Australia in 1886 and was one of the first persons to drive a motor car in Adelaide. He removed later to Victoria and New Zealand, and in a contest gained second honours for the most muscularly developed man in the Dominion. After having served in the Irish Corps in Adelaide, he enlisted for the South African War. On his return from active service he married Mary, eldest daughter of Mr. P. P. Kitchen, of Marrabel. He has left a widow and four children.
