On September 1st 20 of our men, under Lieutenant Wylly, assisted by 20 of the Army Service Corps were out after cattle. They got into a tight corner in very difficult country, in the direction we Tasmanians had been a few days previously.  The guide to the party, a Highlander named Cooper, was shot through the body and taken prisoner.  At the same time Trooper Geoff Brown was mortally wounded and his brother Corporal Brown sustained severe injuries.
