This table is designed to provide information to students, parents, teachers, researchers, historical societies, RSL branches and members of the wider community in relation to the 152 former Perth Modern School students who served Australia in times of conflict and are buried or commemorated in 79 cemeteries and memorials in 25 countries around the world.
The table can be sorted on each of the 14 columns. For example, clicking on “Age at Death” will show that Frank Williamson was the youngest to die at 17 years 10 months and Reg Fenn was the oldest at 41 years 11 months. Clicking on “Date of Death” will show that Stewart Davies and Harry Stapledon died on 6 July 1941 during the battle of Damour in Lebanon and that Tom Harper, wounded in the battle on the 6th, died of his wounds the following day.
Clicking on a student’s name will open a box with a further seven attributes regarding that student, including the circumstances of his death. Close the box by clicking again on that student’s name.
The table can be downloaded in CSV format by clicking on “Export” at the top left of the table. To interrogate the table, save as an Excel file and insert filters in the first row across all 21 columns.
