Herman August Kuring, who was born in Ulina, Victoria in 1895 of German descent, served with distinction in the Australian Army during World War I. During World War II, he rejoined the armed forces, becoming the Commanding Officer of the 10th Garrison Battalion on Rottnest Island. In 1941, while carrying out his duties on Rottnest Island, he disappeared, leading to rumours he was a German spy. He was officially presumed drowned.
