  • You were my great uncle Brother to my grandmother Sophie Elizabeth. An uncle I never new much about and you were too young to marry or have children. You are honored every Anzac day by your extended family and the research I have done will be there for future family members Two things stand like stone Kindness in another's trouble Courage in your own
