  • David is always remembered every Anzac Day in Brighton Dunedin by his relatives who live here. The poignancy of his death so close to the end of the war still astounds and horrifies to this day. Rest in peace David.
    Public - Glenys - Other relative - 17 March 2017
  • Oh, for the touch of a vanished hand And the sound of a voice that is still! Always you are remembered.
