  • Caleb is the brother of my Grandad - the late Francis Murray Hill - buried at Maramarua Cemetry, NZ. I never got to met you Caleb but Grandad always had a photo of your headstone in his desk. Although Grandad didn't speak about the war he did tell us about you. You will always be a hero in our hearts.
