  • Today I attended the 100 year commemorative ANZAC Service in Marlborough, where my thoughts turned to a lost generation of young men including my own Great Uncle James Dilworth Mossman who was killed in action on May 19th, 1915 at the battle of Gallipoli. You will never be forgotten. Paula Mossman
    Public - Peter - Other Relative - 25 April 2015
  • I live in Ireland and James is a descendant of my family from County Tyrone. I grew up not knowing about him but was always interested in Gallipoli. Now I know why.
    Public - Sharon - Other Relative - 16 April 2015
