  • I am doing a school research project on Lieut James Short. My thoughts are with James, his loved ones and comrades at the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. I would like to know how scared and brave you felt when you went to war. I would like to thank you for going to war to fight for our country and the lives we have today. Cooper B.
