Biographical information

Biographical information

  • Embarked Alexandria to join the Meditrerranean Expeditionary Force (Gallipoli Campaign), 5 April 1915.
    Wounded in action (shrapnel wound, forehead); admitted to 17th General Hospital, Alexandria, 30 April 1915; rejoined unit at Gallipoli, 17 May 1915.
    Wounded in action and reported missing, 8 August 1915; no further details immediately available.
    Court of Enquiry, 24 March 1916, determined fate as 'killed in action, 8 August 1915'. Statement from 534 Sergeant C. MADDIGAN, B Coy, 2nd Bn, 23 February 1916: 'Logan was killed in the charge at Lone Pine on 6.8.15. He was struck in the stomach by a bullet. Witness was present and actually saw him. He was pretty bad and could not speak. He lay down on the ground and witness did not see him after that.'

    Base Records wrote to father, 17 May 1921, seeking any information that might help identify son's grave. Brother, R. Logan, replied, 2 July 1921: 'We cannot give you any information regarding the grave of my brother. He was reported wounded, later we had word he was at Alexandria. Three months later we heard he was dead. Through soldiers writing to their friends. At once I wrote to head-quarters & after a time they sent us word he was missing. Some of the boys say he died on a hospital ship going to England. One soldier says he saw him lying badly wounded, but never heard of him again. Another says he knows where he is buried, near his own brother. But as this soldier was an Australian we do nor know his name. Two years after we received his Bible and purse, they were sent from England. They must have been taken from his pockets. It would be a great relief if we could know the truth about his death. We have no letters that would help you. Although we tried in all ways to get information but to no success.' AWMM
