Pennyfather, John (I102)
411 PENNEFATHER, HUGH FRANK (1894-1964), sheepclasser, was born on 5 April 1894 at Pyalong, Victoria, third child and eldest son of Melbourne-born parents Hugh Claude Pennefather (d.1951), wool valuer, and his wife Mabel Annie Rose, née Irving. Edward Curr was his great-grandfather. Hugh Claude joined the Australian Estates & Mortgage Co. Ltd (Australian Estates Co. Ltd from 1936) in 1899 as wool expert. From 1914 he concentrated on sheep-classing. 'Old Penny' travelled about 40,000 miles (64,374 km) a year until the 1930s, classing over forty leading studs and flocks in eastern Australia. Educated at Scotch College, Melbourne, Frank spent two seasons working under his father at the A.E. & M. Co. He jackerooed on Terrick Terrick station, near Blackall, Queensland, for two years, then managed his father's property, Ardsley, near Bathurst, New South Wales.

A member of the 41st Australian Infantry, Militia, Pennefather enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force on 1 June 1915. He served in Egypt, where he was commissioned (March 1916), and in England. In April 1917 he was sent to the Western Front as a lieutenant in the 56th Battalion. Appointed the 14th Brigade's bombing officer, he remained on duty at a critical period in March 1918, despite suffering the effects of gas. In August-September he established and maintained forward dumps while under heavy shell-fire. He was awarded the Military Cross and mentioned in dispatches. After World War I ended he spent some months in England with a Bradford wool firm. His A.I.F. appointment terminated in Sydney on 12 September 1919.

Pennefather ran Widgery Wah, near Trangie, in partnership with his sister, before selling out. At Holy Trinity Church, Kelso, on 7 July 1922 he married Mary Udy Jordan (d.1951) with Anglican rites; they were to have a daughter. Based (1926-58) at Darling Point, Sydney, he travelled extensively, understudying his father who favoured quality, medium wool on a sound frame; like him, he held that sheep-breeding was a total concept. He advised on such interrelated matters as nutrition, pastures, health, management and the special requirements of different areas.

Among the many merino studs and flocks that Pennefather classed were the Australian Estate Co.'s studs Terrick Terrick, Queensland, Raby and Oolambeyan (1930-57), Wanganella (1920s and 1930s), Bairnkine (1946-63), Goolgumbla, Buttabone Stud Park, Deniliquin Stud Park and Uardry, New South Wales, and Mawallok, Victoria. He kept abreast of modern developments by making several trips abroad. Following World War II, he ran a high-class Peppin merino flock on his property, Llambeda, O'Connell, where he carried out extensive pasture improvement. On 24 September 1953 at St Columba's Church, Woollahra, he married with Presbyterian forms Marion Eleanor Little, née Friend (d.1962), a 48-year-old divorcee.

Quiet, unassuming, sociable but somewhat reserved, Pennefather always wore a tie at dinner and addressed men as 'Mr'. Once asked what he looked for in a ram, he replied—'Lust!' He was a keen tennis player, and a member of the Royal Sydney Golf Club and the Australian Club, Sydney. While at Uardry, Hay, for the classing, he died of a coronary occlusion on 11 March 1964 and was cremated with Anglican rites. The daughter of his first marriage predeceased him. 
Pennefather, Hugh Frank (I1521)
412 PENNEFATHER, LIEUT.-GENERAL JOHN LYSAGHT, K.C.B., for a time Commander of the Second Division of the Army of the East, is the son of an Irish clergyman, the Rev, John Pennefather, late of New Park, Tipperary. He was born in 1800, entered the army as Cornet in January 1818, and obtained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in 1839, without having purchased any of his grades. Pennefather's name first came prominently before the world as a trusted officer of that distinguished commander, the late Sir Charles James Napier. The operations which secured the conquest of Scinde have been declared by the Great Duke " the most extraordinary of which he had ever heard or read;" and in these Pennefather performed an important part. In 1843 Napier, taking Pennefather for his brigadier, started from the banks of the Indus with a force chiefly native, marched across the desert without fear of wanting supplies, captured and destroyed the fort of Imannughur, and then concluded a peace with the Ameers of the country. This peace was broken within twenty-four hours after its signature by a treacherous attack on Major Outram's residence, in February 1843. When Napier heard what had taken place, he determined promptly to punish the treachery. Having ascertained that the Ameers were in position at Meannee, ten miles distant from his own camp, with a ferce of 22,000 men, he resolved not to wait until reinforcements should increase their numbers and add to their confidence, but to attack them on the 17th. One who was present at the battle has described the falcon face of Sir Charles as beaming with delight when he greeted Pennefather after victory. Upon a subsequent public occasion in England, Napier declared that to his brigadier he owed the rietory of Meannee. In the grand charge, as our regiments were adnncing up the bank of the river, Pennefather was shot quite through fte bodj, notwithstanding which he remained at the head of his troops until the victory was completed. For his services in Scinde he was Bade a Commander of the Bath, and received the thanks of Parliament; his name was also inscribed with that of Napier on the Bombay triumphal column, cast from the metal of the guns captured at Hyderabad. In 1846 he received the colonelcy of the 28th Foot, having in the same year attained the rank of Colonel in the army. Upon the formation of the Eastern army in 1854. Pennefather was appointed to command the first brigade of the Second Division, with the rank of Major-General. At the battle of the Alma he led his regiments across the river, opposed by the enemy's artillery from the heights above, and pressed on with the greaU'st gallantly and steadiness. An eye-witness of the engagement writes of tha encounter which succeeded the passage of the river.—" Brigadier Pennefather was in the thickest of the fight, leading on and cheering his men, the 55th, 30th, and 95th Regiments. Again and again they were checked, yet they never once drew back in their onward progress, which was marked by a fierce roll of Minie musketry." At the siege of Sebastopol the Second Division was posted to the right; where, on the 20th of October, it was attacked by several strong columns of Russian infantry. Upon this occasion Pennefathert regiments chased the enemy over the ridges, and down to the Bay of Sebastopol; and their Brigadier received again the marked approbation of the Divisional General. At the battle of Inkcrmann the Second Division was under the chief command of Pennefather, General Evans having gone on board ship in the harbour on account of illness. It was the first to sustain the Russian attack, and, in the words of Lord Raglan, "gallantly maintained itself under the greatest difficulties throughout this protracU-d conflict." Pennefather's " admirable behaviour" was brought under the notice of the Minister of War in the despatch of the Commanderin-Chief. One who was at the battle of Inkermann wrote two days after the event,—"To-day I visited a shipful of wounded (the Talavera), including six officers. General Pennefather is among the many astonishing instances of merciful preservation from violent death. He and his Brigade-major Thackwell (both unhurt) had their horses shot under them. I saw the carcase of the eeneral's horse, and beside it the unexploded shell, which had passed into the animal's head and out through his neck." After the battle of Inkermann, Pennefather was compelled by the state of his health to retire for a time from the field. He, however, returned soon afterwards, and took the permanent command of the Second Division, with the rank of Lieutenant-General. In June, 1854, he was appointed Colonel of the 48th Foot- For his services against the Russians Sir John has been created a K.C.B., Commander of the Sardinian Order of St. Maurice and St. Lazarus, and Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour. Pennefather, John Lysaght (I904)
413 PENNEFATHER, REGINALD RICHARD (1905-1957), agricultural scientist, was born on 4 May 1905 at Camberwell, Melbourne, second child of John Francis Pennefather, a Victorian-born clerk of courts, and his second wife Grace Hilda, née Curtis, late Kemp, who came from England. Reg was educated at Wangaratta Agricultural High School, Melbourne Church of England Grammar School (1920-24) and the University of Melbourne (B.Agr.Sc., 1927). After joining the development branch of the Prime Minister's Department as an investigation officer, he examined agricultural conditions in Tasmania, potato marketing, and the transport of sheep. From 1930 he surveyed farms in the chief dairying districts of Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia for the Federal Dairy Investigation Committee.

In 1932 the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research appointed Pennefather a field research assistant at its station at Griffith, New South Wales. He helped to find solutions to the massive problems of salination and declining soil fertility in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. From his investigations of the properties of local soils and the infiltration of water through them, he formulated principles to guide irrigation techniques. In 1940 he became foundation secretary of the C.S.I.R.'s irrigation research and extension committee. He began to put his principles for sustainable irrigation into practice, and much of the region's valuable land was saved from irreparable damage.

Pennefather was made research officer-in-charge of the new soils and irrigation extension service in 1944. He wrote numerous articles in the Farmers' Newsletter and regularly broadcast on radio 2RG. Seconded (1945) to the New South Wales Department of Agriculture to organize its M.I.A. agricultural extension service, he tried to improve both the farmers' economic returns and their way of life. On 9 October 1948 he married Norma Margaret Simms Tracy; she had served in the Women's Land Army. Their only child was stillborn in 1950. After a few years they lived apart.

Concerned that the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization's findings were not being widely disseminated, (Sir) Ian Clunies Ross established an agricultural research liaison section in Melbourne in 1951. Pennefather was persuaded to accept the post of officer-in-charge. His work brought him into contact with many members of the C.S.I.R.O., State departments and university faculties of agriculture. He established closer relations between scientists, farmers and public servants, and narrowed the gap between the results of research and their practical application. The section published the periodical Rural Research in C.S.I.R.O. to provide information on its work.

Although Pennefather had an outgoing personality and got on well with people, he was deeply tormented. On 19 January 1957 he was questioned by police about 'his associations with young boys' and warned that court proceedings would probably follow. He committed suicide by inhaling carbon monoxide on or about 2 February that year in a flat at Parkville and was buried in Melbourne general cemetery. His wife survived him.

Labour Leader on the War.

Sir Alfred Pennefather, writing in the
"Daily Telegraph," calls the attention of
the Government to a pamphlet circulated
in Germany and entitled "Facts About
Germany and the War: 'The Responsibility
of Sir Edward Grey, by Ramsay Mac-

In this pamphlet it is asserted that it is
a diplomatist war, made by half a dozen
men. The evil (it is said) happened be-
cause Sir Edward Grey guided the foreign
policy, and his shortsightedness and blun-
ders had brought this upon us.
