  • Remembering you on this sacred day Private T.E Harrison. I have adopted you as my soldier to remember from the Great War for two reasons; Firstly, because we share a common surname and secondly because I have spent many, many enjoyable hours at and around the Glentunnel area. I have placed a poppy beside your headstone at South Malvern for the passed three ANZAC days, and have spent time talking to you about Glentunnel as it is and was. I have visited Passchendaele and Ypres where you served and fell in the name of the King and our nation, and for this great sacrifice, you will always be remembered in my thoughts and heart. Lest we forget...honour the fallen.
