On 6 November 2012 three ‘Known to God’ headstones at Bomana War Ceremony (Papua New Guinea) were rededicated. Extraordinary research by the Australian Army enabled the placement of new headstones for Lieutenant Scobell McFerran-Rogers, Private John Whitworth and their Timorese interpreter, Roestan, who died in the Celebes in June 1945. The sole surviving member of their Z Special Unit patrol, 91 year old Henry Fawkes was present to finally farewell his mates. He was the last person to see John Whitworth alive. Scobell McFerran-Rogers had died in his arms 67 years ago.
