  • My dear Uncle Henry who was so humorous and so loved by our entire family. He was traumatised by the war and would not speak of it. He was wounded at Monte Cassino whilst driving a truck I think. Perhaps this saved his life, so that he could return home to his beloved Rock and Pillar range. We miss him dearly.
