Harry Hallam.jpg (73161 bytes)Harry Hallam was born 9th January, 1877 in Glenorchy Tasmania .

He enlisted to fight in the Boer War and left Tasmania on the 27th March 1901 and reached the rank of Sergeant in the Fourth (Second Tasmanian Imperial Bushmen Contingent).  

He was promoted to Lieutenant No. 2 Company  

During his war years he was overwhelmed by the oppression he had seen and returned to the Sudan as a missionary.  He worked for the Slavery Repression Department and was killed by those he had gone to help.

He died in his 31st year and his body was never recovered.  

One of the stained glass windows in the Methodist Church at Glenorchy is dedicated to his memory.
