Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of William Charles and Frederica Fuhrmann, of Drouin, Victoria

Formerly with James Clark & Co., Broome.

We deeply regret to record the death, from pneumonia, on August 18th in Palestine, while on active service, of Charles Franklyn Fuhrmann. Mr Fuhrmann was at one time employed in the office of the
Railway Superintendent here, and was very well and favorably known to a large circle of friends. After leaving the Railway Department he entered the service of the Celebes Trading Co. in the Aroes, and later at Broome.
Writing from Jericho on the 14th May to a local friend, Mr Fuhrman wrote :
" We are still keeping things going out this way, although at present it is simply hell. Hope you and yours are all well. Kindest regards to self and J. Kilgour and all friends. Hope to be back among you again shortly."
