  • To My Uncle George - even though we did not meet in this lifetime you are forever in my heart. I will be forever in your debt, you gave your life for my freedom. Until we meet again. Your loving niece.

  • I am George's great-great niece! I do not know much about George. I didn't realise he did not make it back home and died over in England of the influenza. How lonely you must've felt so far away from home, away from family. I couldn't even begin to imagine. I am here for our 4th Dawn Parade at the museum in Auckland. I am here with my husband James, my children Charlotte and Karl (George would be their great-great-great uncle). Thank you George for you contribution to the war. x Jen Hurrell
