  • Grandad Kelso, I remember you talking to me about the mud, the gas, the loss of mates and the struggle to survive. I didn't really understand at the time when you talked about having shrapnel but fully appreciate the sacrifice made and feel fortunate to have you return and be a significant part of our lives growing up. love, Andrae.
