  • I didn't know you Granddad, but you left a lasting positive influence in the lives' of your children and the grandchildren who knew you. Beloved dad of my mum, Moira Pritchard (nee Heslin) of Upper Hutt, New Zealand. I can not imagine how difficult your time in service in WWI was, but I am not alone in being grateful to you and the thousands of others, just like you who served our country.
