Apologies - I noted Georges mothers name as Rebecca - this was actually his Grandmother's name (Rebecca married Francis Adams) Joseph Adams Snr married Elizabeth. Elizabeth (Georges mother) was a victim of the flu epidemic.

My Great, Great Uncle. Killed in action. We don't know very much about Great Uncle George but we are so proud of him. He was a hero who fought for his family and his country. Rest in Peace George. Lest we Forget.
