Thanks to Tereen HOUGH for the following information :- ” This is my Great Uncle, who died just as his ship was pulling into Fremantle. His Mother was waiting on the wharf to meet the ship, when everyone noticed the flag was at half mast. It was for her son who had just passed. He almost made it home “.
