  • I am the daughter of Roy & Norma Steele, Grand-Daughter of Elise (nee Sargisson) & Jack Steele . I am so proud to be able to say that my Great Uncle made the ultimate sacrifice for his family & country, but would have loved to have known this extremely brave & courageous man. A life cut way too short, but such an amazing story to be able to pass onto my sons.

  • Wow such an overwhelming experience going through the Galipolli exhibition at Te Papa. (I am the youngest daughter of Greg, Eric is my fathers grandmothers mother/my fathers great uncle, Elsie is my great great grandmother and was Eric's sister) the realisation of what happened and my ancestor who was so very brave. I shed a few tears and will always remember Eric. Thank you for the lovely stories of this amazing man, stories I can hand onto my children and hold in my heart. I lay a poppy yesterday at this exhibition and I lay another today. May we always remember xox

  • Still so sadly missed by your family almost 100 years after your death in hospital in Malta from severe injuries received during the fighting for Hill 60 on Gallipoli. Such a waste of a young and promising life and such a devastating loss for your parents and siblings. As your father so movingly wrote: I know we should not grieve unduly for Ric who has only gone on before us; his kindly nature and cheerful disposition makes it hard to realise that we shall never again hear his voice and that only his memory remains with us. We shall never forget him, he will live in our memories until our days are ended. One hundred years later he is still not forgotten!

  • We remember Eric ("Ric" ) through our family connections . Ric was my great uncle. He was very much loved by his family and greatly missed.My grandfather was Ric's brother Bertram ( "Bert"). Ric's grand niece( Sally Erwood- Carryer) has done a lot of research and has written a book on Ric's life before and during the war. Murray Sargisson Auckland

  • Never realised the significance of Eric's sacrifice until now, 100 years later. Wasn't spoken about by his sister (my grandmother Elsie) 27 years old is too young. A grave in Malta is far from NZ. I hope someone lays a poppy for him, otherwise this written note shows that we do remember. Greg
