  • Obituary
    “Beth had served in the WAAF’s during the war, and although the Second World War was a long time ago, Bill and Beth showed the qualities we think of as “Anzac spirit” throughout the rest of their lives, and particularly as their lives came to a close.

    Bill and Beth won’t be out selling poppies and marching in the parades any longer, but they will be remembered especially fondly by their family each Anzac Day.” - The Wade family Eulogy to their father Bill. AWMM
