Complément d'informations

Frederick Edward Waterhouse was a 29 year old bank clerk from Burnside, South Australia. Private Waterhouse was part of the 38th Battalion Australian Infantry, 10th Australian Brigade, 3rd Australian Division. In October 1917 his battalion took part in the Battle of Broodseinde. They attacked on the 4th of October with the support of the 37th, 39th and 40th Battalion. The objective of the 38th Battalion was the ‘Red Line’ near Bordeaux Farm and Springfield Farm. Although they were confronted with heavily fortified pillboxes, they managed to reach the objective on barrage time, around 7.15 am, and started consolidating. Stretcher bearers were sent out to bring back the wounded. According to the Red Cross Wounded and Missing files, private Waterhouse, who was appointed as company runner, was sent out to deliver a message to these stretcher bearers. During his mission, he was killed by a shell. He was buried by the battalion chaplain near the place where he fell (D.15d.0.0). His body was never found and private Waterhouse is remembered today on the Menin Gate Memorial bay 25 stone T.
