[There lies Peter Clutterbuck now]

There lies Peter Clutterbuck now
still fourteen, on Phillip Island
where he was sent, and where he died
in 1935 parentless and poor
to the Newhaven Homes for Problem Boys.
His sister could not move him from this grave
since with him is another child
named Victor Hardy, still eleven.

The grave of P Clutterbuck and V Hardy is in Cowes Cemetery, Phillip Island.
