P. Cowling, Mount Cotterell
The Werribee Shire area covered a vast area in 1915-1920 and there are names on the honor board from Werribee, Tarneit, Truganina, Little River, Mount Cottrell, Metropolitan Farm, West Footscray, Melton, Williamstown, Laverton, Newport, Bacchus Marsh and Spotswood.
Whilst this name and initial appears in the Roll of Honor, Werribee Shire Banner, 6 March 1919, p.1 and on the RSL Honor Board, no soldier could be found with the surname of P. Cowling who had any link to Werribee.
The only P. Cowling that could be found in the National Archives of Australia or the AIF Project or on the Australian War Memorial Embarkation Rolls was Percival Robert Cowling (SERN 3269) who had no discernable link to Werribee.
