Biography contributed by Joy Dalgleish

The Busselton War Memorial underwent a major restoration in 1984 when marble slabs were added to the original sandstone because of erosion. There are a number of errors in some names that exist on the war memorial as at 2020. It should also be noted that the names are not listed alphabetically and 5 that were killed in action are no longer shown in the names of the Heroic Dead.  Henery Harrison being one of them.
