Of 107 Duke Street, East Fremantle, WA


The late Private Allen wae one of the heroic spirits who had come forward in response to the Empire's call. He came from a patriotic family, in which six sons had offered, though four had been accepted. He had been the third of the brothers to enlist. He had spent about
three months in France, the most of the time in training, so could have been but a short time in the actual firing line when wounded. From those wounds he haddied.
