  • It is now 100 years since you left your family. In that time they never forgot you and have shared their love of you with their children and their children's children. With the passing of the generations we too have learned of the respect and love that your comrades and superiors had for the man you were. The letters they sent your family after your passing spoke of a man who was highly respected and brave and one who made a mark on his fellow man. We are all proud to call you Uncle.
