  • I am the grand-daughter of Charles' sister Myrtle Tyson (nee Old). Charles is my great uncle. I visited Messine Commonwealth Cemetery in 2007 where Charles' name is inscribed on the memorial for men with no known grave. I piece of NZ greenstone now lies close to the inscription. Your contribution will always be remembered.
