Digital Honour Board — In Memory of Former Perth Modern School Students Who Served Australia —

This table is designed to provide information to students, parents, teachers, researchers and members of the wider community in relation to the 151 former Perth Modern School students who died as a result of their service to Australia in times of conflict.


The table can be sorted on each column. For example, clicking on the heading in the “Age at Death” cell will quickly 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. Two-column sorting can also be undertaken. For example, clicking on “Last Name” and then “Conflict” will produce a list by conflict in alphabetical order by last name.


Readers are encouraged to inform the school of any corrections to and omissions from the table using the suggestion box at the bottom of the table.

Former Perth Modern school students who died as a result of their service in World War 1, World War 2, Malaya and Vietnam.

*Addition information about a student can be found by clicking the + icon to expand each row.
