  • Although I never knew you I think of you every time I drive along Osmond Terrace, Norwood because your name is on the war memorial. You were my Great Uncle and brother to my Grandfather and my Father spoke of you often with pride. I am so sorry we never had the opportunity to meet because sadly the services called you to go overseas never to return but I feel very proud. The only photograph I have is one of you as a young boy Thank you for all you did for our country. I feel very proud and know you are not forgotten. Your Great Niece Raelene
