Note by Veronica Shorten: The first Mary above was the wife of Patrick who is buried in Kellistown.  Mary Casey – she was the mother of my great grandmother,  Anne Clowry who married Patrick Maher of Ballyellin. The second Mary, Mary Clowry wife of James was 32 when she died.  She was formerly a Prandy from Glenaharry and when she died they had no family.  He later married Agnes Foley from Augha near Nurney.   They had two daughters and when he died she married my grandmother’s brother , Patrick Maher of Ballyellin. Then when he died in 1902 Agnes married his nephew Patrick Maher and they had 6 children,  one of whom was Reggie Maher who lived in Kilbricken and gave me a lot of help with the Mahers and Clowrys,  years ago. Reggie told me that the two uncles William and Jeremiah lived on in Kilbricken and never married. My grandmother got the farm land in Kellistown as a Dowry when she married in 1895  and it was in the name of Jeremiah Clowry before it came to our family.

Policeman Matthew Clowry

End of Watch: Saturday, March 31, 1934

Biographical Info
Age: 52
Tour of Duty: 22 years
Badge Number: 710
Unit of assignment: Belgade and Clearfield station

Incident Details
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Date of Incident: Monday, November 21, 1932
Weapon Used: Gun; Unknown type
Suspect Info: David Almeida (acquitted; later murdered another police officer)

Policeman Clowry died of a wound he received on November 21st, 1932, when he was shot in the head by bandits he caught robbing a building and loan at Richmond Street and Indiana Avenue.

Patrolman Matthew Clowry was detailed to guard a meeting of the Commonwealth Building and Loan Association on the evening of November 21, 1932.

Shortly before nine o’clock, three masked and armed men burst through the doorway and shouted “Hands up!” Looking straight at the barrels of two revolvers and a sawed off shot gun, only ten feet away, Patrolman Clowry disregarded the call and reached for his own revolver. At the same instant two of the bandits shot point blank at his head and both a revolver bullet and the charge from the gun struck the front of his cap and inflicted a bad scalp wound above his right eye.

Stunned by the shot, the patrolman fell, and although semi-conscious while another bandit stood over him, he tried to pull his gun on the gang as they ran from the building with the stolen cash. He succeeded in shooting once at the five bandits as they left in an automobile and then went to a Police Signal Box to report the hold-up, at which point he collapsed from wounds and loss of blood. The suspects were later captured because of a description given by Policeman Clowry.

David Almeida and four others were caught in the holdup. The others pleaded guilty and went to jail, but Almeida, accused of driving the gang’s car stood trial and was acquitted. The court thought so little of the verdict that it placed Almeida under $5,000 bail to keep the peace. Almeida went on to commit other bank and commercial robberies and was imprisoned for life after the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Cecil Ingling in 1947.

Policeman Clowry had served with the Philadelphia Police Department for 22 years. He was survived by his wife and four children.

Frank Clowry had arrived in Canberra from Braidwood by 1923 and in 1924 he and his family were the first tenants of Cottage 16 Westlake which was close to Parliament House, where Frank Clowry was the foreman carpenter in the joiners’ shop. In 1931 the family moved to Monaro Crescent, Griffith, Canberra ACT. Felix Clowry worked for the Census office before enlisting in May 1940 and was also a member of the Canberra Aero Club. He embarked for the Middle East in January 1941 and flew bombing missions over Benghazi and Tobruk. His Wellington bomber took off at 21.10 hours on the night of 13/14 July 1941 to bomb Benghazi Harbour but it failed to return. Other pilots on the bombing mission reported seeing an aircraft on fire in the sea about one mile off Benghazi Harbour. No bodies were recovered.

The Alamein Memorial forms the entrance to the El Alamein War Cemetery. The Air Forces panels commemorate more than 3,000 airmen of the Commonwealth who died in the campaigns in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Greece, Crete and the Aegean, Ethiopia, Eritrea and the Somalilands, the Sudan, East Africa, Aden and Madagascar, who have no known grave.
