  • My Grandfather's youngest Brother. I know little about you, but have 2 photos of you - one being your whole family.
    You died so we could live in a free New Zealand, you are not forgotten. Thank you Alfred Victor Shute.
    I believe you died whilst possibly making 'tin jam bombs,' to be used in the coming Battle of the Somme.
