Biography contributed by Brittany Spadaro

Allen was greatly missed by his family. His sister Joyce Ainger (later Joyce Mc Millin) missed him dearly and always wondered what had become of him. He was never forgotten and even though the mystery of Ambon always loomed in the midst he remained in the forefront of everyone's hearts and mind. Even 80 years later your death and sacrifice is honoured with your picture hanging on your Neices wall (Joyce Collins) . 

Your great, great niece has finally discovered the exact whereabouts of your grave, the history of what happened and your legacy 80 years on. 

You will always be remembered
