  • Dad, I know you were like many, many men and woman who didnt talk about the war. I cant imagine how what you saw would affect such a kind, caring, sensitive man. Thank you for instilling in us all the importance of remembering our men and women who went to war. And thank you for helping to run the ANZAC service outside the Albany Memorial library for so many years. We will remember them Dad. Your loving daughter Lesley xx
