Biography

"Trooper H. O Nadenbousch, youngest son of Mr and Mrs Nadenbousch, of Morwell, was accidently drowned at Ismailia, Egypt on December 5 last. More than ordinary sympathy will be felt for the parents who have lost a soldier son after the close of the war. He had been with the Palestine force for about 18 months, though he was only 21 years of age." - from the Gippsland Farmers Journal 20 Dec 1918 (nla.gov.au)
