    Henry was a member of the First Reinforcements that arrive at Dili, Timor, aboard M.V. “Kalama”, on 22 Jan 1942, prior to the Japanese landing. He joined the unit as a Private. After the campaign on Timor, he embarked with the unit, for Australia aboard the Royal Dutch destroyer “Tjerk Hiddes” on either 11 Dec 1942 or 16 Dec 1942, as the embarkation rolls do not differentiate. 

    After leave and reorganization he embarked with the unit for New Guinea as a Trooper in No 10 Sect, aboard S.S. “DUNTROON” on 17 Jun 1943.

    Sadly, Henry was Killed in Action, on 7 Jan 1944 at “FAITA”, New Guinea.
