Leave a tribute or memory of
Richard Charles Travis
Dick Travis was my Grand mother's brother.
My Great Uncle
As a young boy I spent a lot time on the family farm with two great Aunts and Dick's brother.
I have a lot of information on Dick Travis, family photo's etc.
I have traced all of Dicks siblings graves in Opotiki and Hamilton.

Dick Travis is an amazing NZer with and incredible story. If possible you should get your hands on the book written by J A Gasson. Proud to be related and to be able to share his stories of courage under fire with my children.

All I know is that he is an old relative of mine and that he won many special awards. But still i would like to remember him..

On 4 August 1917 he went on patrol along the western bank of the River Lys,with my great great grandfather, C.B.McClure. I have a souvenir of what they found on that patrol. I have read the book about Travis VC that my dad has, by James Gasson. I will be calling out his name on Friday at my schools Anzac Field of Remberance service. I will always remember them both.
