  • Thank you Alex. I never knew you,my Mother was your eldest daughter Merle. I always remember how when the Last Post was played she was so upset as it reminded her so much of you. You served in WW1 and WW2 to enable us to enjoy the life of freedom we have today. Arohanui ,love and respect from your grand daughter Susan Thorn
