Prince William supports searching for Pemulways remains

Jamie Wolther-Pinkerton, Private Secretary to HRH Prince William of Wales and HRH Prince Henry of Wales, writes that ‘Prince William on his recent visit to Redfern had been asked if he could help investigate the circumstances surrounding the missing head of Pemulwuy. ‘The reason for this was that The Prince was very deeply moved by the story of the warrior’s death and decapitation, and by the depth of feeling that this, rightly, still arouses within the Indigenous community of Australia.’ In a letter to Mick Mundine, Redfern Community Centre, Mr Wolther-Pinkerton explains that Pemulwuy’s head may have been destroyed in the bombing of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1941, or possibly may even have been returned to Australia in 1998. The Prince intends to keep on with his investigations as to the whereabouts of Pemulwuy’s remains.
