This table is designed to provide information to students, parents, teachers, researchers in academia, historical societies, RSL branches and members of the wider community in relation to the 151 former Perth Modern School students who served in over 200 military units 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. Two-column sorting can also be undertaken. For example, clicking on “Place of Death” and then “Date of Death” will show that Stewart Davies, Tom Harper and Harry Stapledon all died 6-7 July 1941 during the battle of Damour in Lebanon.
Readers are encouraged to inform the school of any corrections and omissions using the suggestion box at the bottom of the table.
Abbreviations: AFC = Air Force Cross, DFC = Distinguished Flying Cross, MC = Military Cross, MID = Mentioned in Despatches, ASM = Australian Service Medal, BWM = British War Medal, PS = Pacific Star, VM = Victory Medal, WM = War Medal.
