Leave a tribute or memory of
Donald Bruce McKenzie
In memory of my Grandfather, Major Donald Bruce Mckenzie, who fought in Egypt, Gallipoli and France. Although l never knew you l have always felt your spirit, have dreamt of distant battles that l now can put a name to having researched your short life. To return to active service having been invalided in France and to return to fight in Gallipoli for the last three months of the campaign and then to be transferred to fight in the trenches of France proves what a brave and honorable gentleman and soldier you were. I feel proud to call you my Grandfather and pay tribute to your memory.
