Mystery death: Dusker, Frederick Alfred who died in the Renmark Hospital Dec 31 1927 whilst employed as a labourer at Lock 6.
I wonder what caused his death? He was only 24.
His grieving mother and sister put memorium notices in the papers for several years. I have searched Trove and can find nothing else about this young man.
Can You help?
