  • Today is ANZAC day Granddad - 5 years have gone by and in that 5 years you have become a great great grandfather to the most beautiful little girl who’s name is Hannah.

    Thank you for your service and all those other brave men that fought for us to have the freedoms that we have today.

  • Today Grandad is ANZAC Day and on this day every year I think of you and wish with all my heart I had met you.

    I am the exact age you were (49 years) when we lost you and that was less than 3 Months after I was born. I was your first grandchild and mum was just about to take me to meet you (you had only heard me cry on the phone) when you died.

    I so wish I had met you, I have always carried you around in my heart. Thank you for being mums amazing dad, she has always put you on a pedestal where I believe you belong.

    Thank you also for serving our country Captain Alwym Thomas Agnew (My Grandad)
