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 58 cemeteries and memorials in 25 countries around the world.
The table can be sorted on each column. For example, clicking on the heading in the “Age at Death” cell 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 there the following day.
Clicking on a student’s name will open a box with further information regarding that student. Close the box by clicking again on that student’s name.
Readers are encouraged to inform the school of any corrections and omissions using the suggestion box at the bottom of the table.
