Leave a tribute or memory of
Eric Hamilton Clark
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.
