  • In loving memory of my Dad, Frank Harlow, who died in Australia at the wonderful age of 102 September 2015. His ashes were scattered in New Zealand July 2017 with Mum, Jean Maria Harlow.

    Dad moved to Australia after Mum died & was extremely active for the next 22 years . He became very involved with NZVIA (New Zealand Veterans in Australia) & was in the Sydney ANZAC Parade with them from 2012, His last Parade was in 2015. He was also a volunteer at the local RSL Respite Day Care group, the Granny Smith Club, for nearly 22 years.

    Dad became a prolific recorder of his life story, both written & photographic, with much research done to ensure that his memories of his service in Egypt, the Middle East, Greece & Crete were correct. This included his war service diaries.
    Public - Sharyn Maxwell Nicholson - Child - 2 August 2017
