Alexander Burnett Charters
I feel very humbled to know my great grandfather served to such a magnitude in the First World War. He obviously was suited to a life in the military and took great joy from being the best that he could be, to safe guard us all, so that we might have the life we now have in NZ. Thank you Grandpop for contributing to NZ being the great country it is, especially the freedom I have every day to be the best woman I can be. May I continue to honor the NZ spirit and fight every day to ensure NZ stays free for the common man.
