  • I know I never got to meet you David, but I have been told a lot about you as I have been doing my family tree. I also wear your medals on ANZAC Day. I hope some day I get to visit your grave in Belgium. R.I.P David. Lots of love from your 3rd Great Niece Cassandra.

  • Although I never met you, David, I wish I had because I have heard a lot of fond stories about you. I know you were a painter/decorator and that you never smoked or drank alcohol. You were admired and well loved by your family who always kept a fresh sprig of rosemary on your photo in remembrance. My aim is to visit your grave in Belgium one day. RIP
