Statement, Red Cross File No 2070613, 1308 Pte W. GRAHAM, 30th bn (patient, 2nd Canadian General Hospital, Boulogne), 21 September 1916: 'We had been told to retire but a whole bunch of men did not hear the order and were cut off. Next day the Shropshires saw a party of our boys marched along the road behind the German line prisoners. I am pretty certain that Owen and [2766 W.R.] Willing were amongst them.'
Second statement, 6 E.C. EVANS, 30th Bn (patient, 1st Australian Auxiliary Hospital, Harefield, England), 4 December 1916: 'He was killed at No-Man's Land, Fleurbaix. I did not see him killed, but I helped to bury him. He was about 5ft. 7in. high, medium build, dark hair. There were so many to bury that I had not time to particularly notice what had happened to him. Am certain it was OWEN, didn't know him by his number. He had no disc on him, we all knew it was OWEN. He was buried in the Cemetery there.'Medals: 1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal
