Mr R. Plunkett of Molesworth has been notified that his son, Cpl Harold Plunkett, died in Siam on Aug. 8, 1943 while a prisoner of war. He was aged 24 years.

Cpl Plunkett was a member of the 2/40th Battalion, and was taken prisoner in Timor. Prior to his enlistment he was attached to the staff of the New Norfolk Post Office. He was a prominent member of the New Norfolk football and cricket clubs, and one of the most promising cricketers in the Derwent Valley.
