  • I am fortunate to be named after my Mother's cousin who was dearly missed when he gave his life for our freedom. Our mother Mary Dorothy Robson talked of his humour and dashing looks when he would visit her. The family felt his loss greatly.

  • This is my kindy teacher Christine's uncle & she told me about him at kindy so I wanted to put a Poppy here for him. My Great Poppa & Great Grandad both fought in World war 2 but they were lucky & got to come home. Thank you Anthony for fighting for our country. From Georgie
