  • I am so happy to have you now added and remembered in this Cenotaph record as even though you didn't go overseas to war you looked after our citizens and loved ones here which was an equally as important job. Its wonderful to have found your diary on line of the capture of Von Luckner. You were a brave and courageous family man who did your duty for your country. Thank you for all you did. We will remember them. Your loving granddaughter Lesley Dixon
