  • My brother David has carried out considerable research in to Uncle Guy war history , I am so sorry we never had a chance to meet him . What a brave Solider to live through two major conflicts Gallipoli and then the French front . Then to be kept in Featherston Military Camp for 8 months then to die 4 days before Armistice Day. We have so many missing pieces to his life it is unfair, WE will think of you Uncle Guy on ANZAC day and will place a poppy at your grave Chris Bridgeman
