William 'Bill' OUTTRAM (1883-1917)
An article in "Good Weekend" The Age Magazine, April 25, 1992, about John Laffin, military historian mentions the time in 1985 when he unearthed the original burial plaque of Bill Outtram -

    "His most touching find was the original burial plaque for Private Bill Outtram of the 58th Battalion, unearthed at Montauban in 1985. Bill a bullock driver and sawmiller of Casterton, Victoria, died on 16 November, 1916, from wounds received in the Somme fighting. The unofficial plaque was attched to a makeshift wooden cross over his grave. In 1919, when Bill's remains were disinterred for final burial in a cemetery, the plaque was thrown into the mud."
