  • Dad, thinking of you as always. We all have the the memory of attending the Dawn Service at the Museum on ANZAC Day, as children. My family will be attending the Dawn Service at the Joondalup City Memorial, as we have done since your death. My girls and I have a full set of miniatures of your medals, which are worn with great pride. John
