  • My Dearest Dad passed away this day 4 years ago just 2 days before Anzac Day. He never missed a service where he marched proudly with his medals from WW2 with his fellowmen. On the 25 April 2015 myself and my family will attend dawn service to honour my father, and his father Reginald, a Gallipolli veteran. RIP Ronald Edward and Reginald Hugh.

  • As his last memories were of the war and his comrades, then it's only fitting that a tribute to my father is at this solemn time of the year. Ron's Father and Uncle both survived Gallipoli, and Ron survived many bomber raids over German skies. Memories always there.
