  • I never knew Allan but knew his brother George. Both were a part of the Albany community for a long time and well respected. Allan's story of being killed in a tank in Italy has always been remembered in our family. I hope that the sacrifice he made is never forgotten and that humanity eventually embraces what he fought and died for.
