262 David SHORT died abord the SS Gothenburg which was a steamship that operated along the British and then later the Australian and New Zealand coastlines. He was the Chief Engineer.

In February 1875, she left Darwin, Australia en route to Adelaide when she encountered a cyclone-strength storm off the north Queensland coast. The ship was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef north-west of Holbourne Island on 24 February 1875.

Survivors in one of the lifeboats were rescued two days later by the Leichhardt, while the occupants of two other lifeboats that managed to reach Holbourne Island were rescued several days later. Twenty-two men survived, while between 98 and 112 others died, including a number of high-profile civil servants and dignitaries.

Cemetery: YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIALIeper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium

Grave or Reference Panel Number: Panel 7 - 17 - 23 - 25 - 27 - 29 - 31

Location: Ypres (now Ieper) is a town in the Province of West Flanders. The Memorial is situated at the eastern side of the town on the road to Menin (Menen) and Courtrai (Kortrijk). Each night at 8 pm the traffic is stopped at the Menin Gate while members of the local Fire Brigade sound the Last Post in the roadway under the Memorial's arches.

Visiting Information: The Panel Numbers quoted at the end of each entry relate to the panels dedicated to the Regiment served with. In some instances where a casualty is recorded as attached to another Regiment, his name may alternatively appear within their Regimental Panels. Please refer to the on-site Memorial Register Introduction to determine the alternative panel numbers if you do not find the name within the quoted Panels.

Historical Information: The Menin Gate is one of four memorials to the missing in Belgian Flanders which cover the area known as the Ypres Salient. Broadly speaking, the Salient stretched from Langemarck in the north to the northern edge in Ploegsteert Wood in the south, but it varied in area and shape throughout the war. The Salient was formed during the First Battle of Ypres in October and November 1914, when a small British Expeditionary Force succeeded in securing the town before the onset of winter, pushing the German forces back to the Passchendaele Ridge. The Second Battle of Ypres began in April 1915 when the Germans released poison gas into the Allied lines north of Ypres. This was the first time gas had been used by either side and the violence of the attack forced an Allied withdrawal and a shortening of the line of defence. There was little more significant activity on this front until 1917, when in the Third Battle of Ypres an offensive was mounted by Commonwealth forces to divert German attention from a weakened French front further south. The initial attempt in June to dislodge the Germans from the Messines Ridge was a complete success, but the main assault north-eastward, which began at the end of July, quickly became a dogged struggle against determined opposition and the rapidly deteriorating weather. The campaign finally came to a close in November with the capture of Passchendaele. The German offensive of March 1918 met with some initial success, but was eventually checked and repulsed in a combined effort by the Allies in September. The battles of the Ypres Salient claimed many lives on both sides and it quickly became clear that the commemoration of members of the Commonwealth forces with no known grave would have to be divided between several different sites. The site of the Menin Gate was chosen because of the hundreds of thousands of men who passed through it on their way to the battlefields. It commemorates those of all Commonwealth nations except New Zealand who died in the Salient before 16 August 1917. Those United Kingdom and New Zealand servicemen who died after that date are named on the memorial at Tyne Cot, a site which marks the furthest point reached by Commonwealth forces in Belgium until nearly the end of the war. Other New Zealand casualties are commemorated on memorials at Buttes New British Cemetery and Messines Ridge British Cemetery. The YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL now bears the names of more than 54,000 officers and men whose graves are not known. The memorial, designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield with sculpture by Sir William Reid-Dick, was unveiled by Lord Plumer in July 1927.

Cemetery: DAMASCUS COMMONWEALTH WAR CEMETERY, Syria

Grave or Reference Panel Number: D. 32.

Location: The cemetery is approximately 5 kilometres south-west of the city centre in an area known as Sabara (Arabic for prickly pear). The cemetery is amongst an area of prickly pear plants, which is located behind apartment blocks and therefore is not easily viewed from any main roads. However, visitors can best reach the cemetery by private car or taxi. From the large roundabout on the west side of Damascus, known as Al Umawiyeen Square, visitors pass the entrance of the Sheraton Hotel on the main dual carriage way, towards the Australian Embassy, and should take the side road 40 metres on the left, then turn immediately right. The Cemetery will be found on the left.

Visiting Information: The staff at Damascus Commonwealth War Cemetery finish work each day at 2.00 pm and the gates are locked from that time. Arrangements are in hand for a spare set of keys to be kept nearby and a sign erected on the gates informing visitors of the locality.

Historical Information: The cemetery dates from the 1914-1918 War, when Damascus was entered by the British on October 1st, 1918, the first British medical unit arriving the next day. They found the Turkish hospitals crowded with sick and wounded, and a few days later an epidemic of influenza and cholera broke out. The 1914-1918 burials in this cemetery were mostly from these hospitals. The 1939-1945 War burials began in 1941, during the operations against the Vichy French, and later on casualties were moved into the cemetery from civilian burial grounds, Deraa French Military Cemetery, and from scattered graves in the areas where the fighting occured. The first burials were in a tree belt between the cemetery boundaries and the low wall of hammer-dressed stone which enclosed the plots of existing graves. Adjoining land to the west, known as "The Cypresses", was acquired by the military authorities when it became necessary to enlarge the cemetery. There are now 661 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war, 74 of which are unidentified, and 504 of the 1939-1945 war, 14 of which are unidentified, commemorated in this site. In the new part of the cemetery, special memorials are erected to 6 soldiers of the Indian army who were buried in Damascus Indian War Cemetery but whose graves are now lost. There are also 7 Foreign National burials here, 2 of which are unidentified. Also wothin this cemetery is the Damascus 1939-45 Memorial. This memorial commemorates ten Arab soldiers, casualties of the 1939-1945 War, whose graves in Syria, Lebanon and Israel are so situated that permanent maintenance is not possible. It is in the form of a simple screen wall of local stone with four Portland stone panels. On the two central panels are engraved the names of those whom it honours. The two outer panels bear a dedicatory inscription in English and Arabic. The English version reads:. THE SOLDIERS WHOSE NAMES ARE HONOURED HERE SERVED AND DIED DURING THE WAR OF 1939-1945 AND WERE BURIED IN NEIGHBOURING LANDS

Cemetery: LAE WAR CEMETERY, Papua New Guinea

Grave or Reference Panel Number: F. D. 10.

Location: Lae is a town and port at the mouth of the Markham River on the Huon Gulf. Lae War Cemetery is located adjacent to the Botanical Gardens in the centre of Lae. Within the cemetery will be found the Lae Memorial, commemorating officers and men of the Royal Australian Army, the Australian Merchant Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force who lost their lives in operations in the area and who have no known grave.

Historical Information: In the air Japan enjoyed a crushing superiority in the early months of 1942, and it was Lae and its neighbouring airfields that were the objects of the first Japanese attack on New Guinea. Lae and Salamaua were bombed on 21st January, 1942, by 100 planes, but the land forces did not enter the territory until 7th March, when 3,000 Japanese landed at Lae. There were landings too, at Salamaua, followed on 21st July by further landings at Buna and Gona on the east coast in preparation for a drive through the Owen Stanley Mountains across the Papuan peninsula to Port Moresby. The vital stage of the New Guinea campaign dates from that time. Lae became one of the bases from which the southward drive was launched and maintained until it was stopped at Ioribaiwa Ridge, a point within 60 kilometres of Port Moresby. Lae War Cemetery was commenced in 1944 by the Australian Army Graves Service, from whom it was taken over by the Imperial War Graves Commission in September 1947. This 1939-1945 War Cemetery contains the graves of men who lost their lives during the New Guinea campaign. They were brought here from the temporary military cemeteries in areas where the fighting took place. The Indian casualties were soldiers of the army of undivided India who had been taken prisoner during the fighting in Malaya and Hong Kong. The great majority of the 420 who are unidentified were recovered between But airfield and Wewak, where they had died while employed in working parties. Of the two men belonging to the army of the United Kingdom, one was attached to 2/9th Australian Infantry Battalion and the other was a member of the Hong Kong-Singapore Royal Artillery. The naval casualties were killed, or died of injuries received, on H.M. Ships King George V, Glenearn and Empire Arquebus, and the four men of the Merchant Navy were killed when the S.S. Gorgon was bombed and damaged in Milne Bay in April 1943. In this cemetery is the Lae Memorial, which commemorates officers and men of the Australian Army, the Australian Merchant Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force who lost their lives in these operations and have no known grave. It takes the form of bronze tablets fixed to walls linking the end columns of the colonnade, upon which are engraved the names. Casualties of the Royal Australian Navy who lost their lives in the south-western Pacific region, and have no known grave but the sea, are commemorated on Plymouth Naval Memorial in ENGLAND along with many of their comrades of the Royal Navy and of other Commonwealth Naval Forces. Prior to the 1914-1918 War north-eastern New Guinea and certain adjacent islands were German possessions, and were occupied by Australian Forces on 12th September 1914. Several cemeteries in New Guinea contain the graves of men who died during that war. There is one such grave in Lae War Cemetery, brought in from a burial ground where permanent maintenance could not be assured.

In Memory of

EDMOND CHARLES SLOGGETT

Private

2nd Bn., Australian Infantry, A.I.F

who died on: Tuesday 25 July 1916 .

Cemetery: VILLERS-BRETONNEUX MEMORIALSomme, France

Location: Villers-Bretonneux is a village 16 kilometres east of Amiens on the straight main road to St Quentin. The Memorial stands in Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery, which is about 2 kilometres north of the village on the east side of the road to Fouilloy.

Visiting Information: The names are engraved on the memorial in order of battalion, then alphabetically under rank.

Historical Information: Villers-Bretonneux became famous in 1918, when the German advance on Amiens ended in the capture of the village by their tanks and infantry on 23 April. On the following day, the 4th and 5th Australian Divisions, with units of the 8th and 18th Divisions, recaptured the whole of the village and on 8 August 1918, the 2nd and 5th Australian Divisions advanced from its eastern outskirts in the Battle of Amiens. The VILLERS-BRETONNEUX MEMORIAL is the Australian national memorial erected to commemorate all Australian soldiers who fought in France and Belgium during the First World War, to their dead, and especially to those of the dead whose graves are not known. The 10,700 Australian servicemen actually named on the memorial died in the battlefields of the Somme, Arras, the German advance of 1918 and the Advance to Victory. The memorial was unveiled by King George VI in July 1938. The memorial stands within VILLERS-BRETONNEUX MILITARY CEMETERY, which was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in from other burial grounds in the area and from the battlefields. Plots I to XX were completed by 1920 and contain mostly Australian graves, almost all from the period March to August 1918. Plots IIIA, VIA, XIIIA and XVIA, and Rows in other Plots lettered AA, were completed by 1925, and contain a much larger proportion of unidentified graves brought from a wider area. Later still, 444 graves were brought in from Dury Hospital Military Cemetery. There are now 2,141 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. 608 of the burials are unidentified but there are special memorials to five casualties known or believed to be buried among them, and to 15 buried in other cemeteries whose graves could not be found on concentration. The cemetery also contains the graves of two New Zealand airmen of the Second World War. Both cemetery and memorial were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
