    Report 
  • Granddad, I was asked during the ANZAC day March if I had relatives that went to war, I wasn't sure so asked dad, and what he told me led me to a search and I discovered you were in Tabrook in the the early 40's. What I saw in you tube postings etc of that conflict made me realise what you and your mates must have gone through. RESPECT. You have many beautiful great grand kids, 2 of which are mine, Jorja and Charlie. Grandma got to met them before she passed. they will be shown the past and what you and grandma did. Take care and love to grandma, sure you are together again. Matthew.
