  • Your family will never forget you and your bravery, helping to save NZ from (physical) War. I am your great-niece. My dad Charles Edward Percy Moreland was named after you, as was my cousin Lawrence Charles Cain. I have visited the memorial where your name appears in Polygon Wood, Belgium and this Nov 2018 I have arranged for a poppy to be laid in your honour at the Remembrance site in Westminster Abbey grounds in London and I will be there to see it on Armistice Day, 100 years after the end of the War.
