A tribute to the memory of Private Henry William Bowen who lost his life when His Majesty`s Transport "Southland"was torpedoed in the Aegean Sea
In his last letter to his parents he wrote -
"Do not worry for our safety, for we will take all possible care of ourselves, but it remains for a Higher Hand than ours to guide us on our way."
"Unmindful of his own safety, Private Bowen displayed praiseworthy anxiety as to the whereabouts of his younger brother, Walter, who however was saved." Extracted from the All-Australia Memorial History
