Perrin, Harry William (1848–1915)

A once well-known local military officer has just 'gone to the beyond.' Colonel H. W. [Harry William] Perrin's remains were interred on Monday last at Booroondara. The funeral was largely attended. The coffin was covered with the Union Jack. Deceased, who was a member of the firm of Welch, Perrin & Co., was 67 years of age. Colonel Perrin was the first commanding officer of the local Garrison Artillery, for so many years a crack contingent, its members being mostly residents of this municipality. Deceased was very proud of his battery, and at all times pleased with the success of his men. He leaves a widow, the eldest daughter of the late Captain J. K. Freyer, of Stevedore street, in his day one of the town's oldest and most respected residents. He also leaves a married daughter.
