Greetings
I'm currently photographing the WW1 graves in Fremantle Cemetery and have come upon the following Lighthorsemen. If any readers have further information on the following men it would be great to hear it.

1853-Tpr Harry Clarke - 10th Light Horse & Australian Vet Hospital? - Died 01/04/19 - C.E.AA.1647

1241-Tpr Arthur Ernest Furlong - 10th Light Horse - Died 23/05/18 - From Palmerston New Zealand - C.E.AA.1665

2933-Tpr Owen George - 10th Light Horse - Died 07/02/19 0f TB - From Gnowangerup WA - C.E.AA.1648

1648-Lance Sergeant George Munro - 2nd Australian Remount Unit - Died 11/06/16 - Husband of Mrs C Munro of Gardenvale Victoria - Pres.EE.168

552-Sgt Peter Carswell McBride - 7th Light Horse Regiment - Died 24/09/16 - Enlisted Wilcannia NSW - Pres EE.192

1077-Tpr Leslie John McLeod - 9th Light Horse Regiment - Died 29/08/15 - Son of Mr & Mrs McLeod of Ballarat - C.E.AA 1626

103-Pte Charles William Owen - 1st Light Horse Field Ambulance - Died 30/09/16 of Sarcoma of the liver - From Heywood Victoria - C.E.AA1632

2055-Tpr Oswald Vincent Pearson - 3rd Australian Light Horse - Died 19/02/16 of Meningitis - Born Riverton SA - Pres EE.169

1119-Pte William George Podmore - 3rd Light Horse Machine Gun Squadron - Died 06/06/18 of Nephritis & Pyaemia - From Hobart Tasmania - C.E.AA1664

3674-Tpr Ernest Victor Walter - 10th Light Horse - Died 29/01/1918 of Intestinal Obstruction - From Albany S.A.J.262

Most of these men would have been patients in No.8 AGH which was based in Fremantle. Does anyone know what would have happened to the patient records of such a hospital. Would the AWM or NAA hold such items.

Cheers
Andrew

Andrew,
Very interesting.

Your best bet is the NAA to get their service records.

There may be a unit diary in the AWM archives,,,,,,, it would be worth a check but the details of each patient would not normally be recorded in that record. As Steve has said, the best way would be to get their dervice records from the NAA

Cheers Steve & Rob.
I've been trying to access Record Search on the NAA Website to see if there are such records for No.8 AGH, but unfortunately it's been down all weekend.
