      Commemorative Information
      Cemetery: PERTH WAR CEMETERY AND ANNEX, Western Australia, Australia
      Grave Reference/
      Panel Number: S.B.1.

      Historical Information: Perth War Cemetery was established by the Army in 1942 as a last resting place of those who died on service during the 1939-1945 War, and the remains of many casualties were brought in from civil cemeteries and temporary military cemeteries, so that they might lie among their comrades. It was also used for the burial of those who died of wounds in Hollywood Military Hospital after return from operational areas, and of others who died from accident or sickness. The cemeteries from which casualties were moved include Albany General Cemetery, Ballidu General Cemetery, Boulder General Cemetery, Broome War Cemetery, Bunbury General Cemetery, Harvey War Cemetery, Kalgoorlie General Cemetery, Karrakatta General Cemetery, Margaret River General Cemetery, Merredin War Cemetery, Moora War Cemetery, Narrogin General Cemetery, Northam General Cemetery and York General Cemetery. There are less than 20, 1914-18 war and nearly 500, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this cemetery. Among them is "Bluey" Truscott (Sqdn. Ldr. Keith W. Truscott, D.F.C. and Bar, Mentioned in Despatches) the football star and famous Australian air ace, who was a member from its beginning of the first Australian fighter squadron to be formed in the United Kingdom. During the battle of Milne Bay his Squadron - No. 76 - together with No. 75 Squadron played a vital part in halting the Japanese advance on Australia's doorstep. The cemetery was taken over by the Commission in February 1949. The writing desk in the Records Building at the main entrance was the gift of the Government of Western Australia on behalf of the people of the State. It holds the register containing the names and service particulars of those buried or commemorated in the cemetery, and the visitors' book. In this building, too, is the Western Australia Cremation Memorial. Immediately adjoining Perth War Cemetery, and originally part of it, is an enclosure known as the Perth War Cemetery Netherlands Annexe, with a separate entrance on Smythe Road. Here are buried 4 men of the Netherlands Navy, 1 man of the Netherlands Air Force and 21 Dutch civilians, 5 of whom are not identified. These civilians were evacuees from Java who were flown to Australia. As the seaplanes came to rest in Broome harbour they were attacked by Japanese fighter aircraft and all were sunk. There were many survivors, but a number whose bodies were not recovered also lost their lives.
