Mr Douglas Collins Fraser (1915–1935)

from Courier-Mail

Following a service in the picturesque little church at Mundoolun, his parents' station home, near Beaudesert, the body of Douglas Collins Fraser (20), elder son of Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Fraser, will be buried in the adjoining private cemetery to-day. Douglas Fraser died on Sunday at Beaufort, Victoria. His father, after a 1200 mile flight from Beaudesert by aeroplane, reached the youth's bedside a few hours before he died. Yesterday, Mr. Fraser and his wife, who had travelled to Victoria when the news of her son's accident was first received, returned to their home in Mr. John Collins's Leopard Moth aeroplane, and the body was taken to Brisbane on the Kyogle mail train. Mrs. Fraser is the youngest daughter of the late Hon. Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Collins, of Tamrookum, and a granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Collins, of Mundoolum, whose memory is perpetuated in the church on that property. Many other relatives of the Collins family are buried in the private cemetery.
