  • Ernest Henry Walker is my father and was age 70yrs old when I was born. He was a stockman and blacksmith and well respected in our neighbourhood. Anzac day has always been an quietly emotional day in remembrance of my Dad. I still have 2 of his war medals which I have kept safely locked away. Lest We Forget.
