  • Arthur William Brosnan was my paternal Great-Great Grandmother's (Jane Ellen Brosnan)Brother. We recently visited the battle fields of France to visit a family member on my Australian maternal grandmother's side and wanted to look into the paternal links I have through my New Zealand father. RIP Arthur William - thank you for your ultimate sacrifice. It is 100 year this year that you died in action. We hope to visit you one day in your resting place in Belgium. The Leyden Family
