CW Radburn

Grave markers of 484 Sergeant (Sgt) Louis Shannon Brook MM, of Pimpino, Victoria, and 3371 Trooper (Tpr) Clarence William Radburn, of Neville, NSW, both of the 1st Australian Light Horse Regiment. Both men were killed when they were ambushed by Turkish soldiers on 28 September 1918, although these original grave crosses are marked 29.9.1918. Their saddled horses are standing behind the soldiers' graves.
Despite detailed notes and maps on the location of the graves on Tpr Radburn's service record, they were never found by grave registration units in 1922. Sgt Brook is now commemorated on Panel 58 at the Jerusalem Memorial and Tpr Radburn on Panel 59 at the Jerusalem Memorial.
