  • I have been researching my family lines -particularly the Daniels and Hunter connections and found Francis Wilfred Hunter 1892 -1916. Frank was a musician before the war and was killed a week before his 24th birthday. Again and again I find these names in my researching -cut off in their prime - never given a chance to fulfill their potential. And our nations ( ANZAC ) have felt this loss ever since.
    Rest in peace Frank.
