  • My Grandmother was Eric's eldest sister, May. She was born in the late 1880's and was in her 80's when I was a child. She had pictures of her brothers, Eric and Jack, who were both killed in WW1, Eric at Gallipoli, Jack at Messines, France, in her sitting room. One Anzac Day I was visiting and found her crying - stunned I asked her why and she told me she was crying for her baby brothers, Eric and Jack. This was in the 1970s, and I thought grown-ups didn't cry, especially not grown-ups as old as my Grandma! I will never forget my Grandmother's grief, and so I pay tribute and remember Eric Hamilton Clark, her beloved baby brother, killed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915, aged 23. He was never found.

  • Eric was my Great uncle (great Grandmothers' brother). Eric sadly suffered the ultimate sacrifice. I am humbled by his courage and very proud of him. My daughter Courtney visited Lone Pine in Gallipoli in 2014 and was greatly moved. With remembrance. Caryl Carson
  • Brother of Jack Bruce Clark killed in action 31 January 1917 at Messines Belgium. Always Remembered Forever loved by his family
