  • Lionel Murray Highes... Thank you so very much for freeing my country and for fighting for my welfare as well as others. I really appreciate what you have done and hope others can see that as well. I have found out a lot about you as my ancestor and I think that you had a quite complicated life that you enjoyed very much. I will salute to you on ANZAC Day as not only a fallen soldier, but part of my family too. You have also been a great person to do a soldier report on. Thank you again, Love Molly, your cousin's great granddaughter. Auckland Museum, you have done a great job with executing these details and I found it very easy to find out lots of useful information.
