Biography contributed by Peter Rankin

Garnet's family epitaph  reads-  HE FELT IT WAS HIS DUTY, TO TAKE A NOBLE PART, THERE WAS NO FEAR OF DANGER, IN HIS LOYAL AND BRAVE YOUNG HEART, HE LEFT AUSTRALIA IN HEALTH AND STRENGTH, NOT KNOWING DEATH WAS NEAR, OR THAT HE NEVER WOULD RETURN, TO THE ONE THAT LOVED HIM DEAR.
