Robert Tilsley is my great-grandfather on my mother's side. I stumbled upon this webpage by accident and was so moved reading through all of the information here. So thankful that this information has been so meticulously saved and entered in to the Auckland Museum database to honor true heroes like my great-grandfather. Wounded three times, he was at Gallipoli, I'm so proud to even be related to him. And I was so glad to see the photo of my grandmother (Frances Davey) holding a news clipping regarding her father - what a treasure. Thanks so much for maintaining this archive so that honorable men like my great-grandfather can be memorialized and so their descendants can learn more about the sacrifices they made.
