  • I'm very proud to be a cousin of Leddra who was one of the 2779 New Zealanders that were killed at Gallipoli. My great-grandma Leslie Wallis was the first cousin of Lottie, Leddie, and Owen.

    All gave some, some gave all.

  • Remembering Great Uncle Leddie today...he was a teacher. Leddie died at Gallipoli and is buried in Shrapnel Valley cemetery there. He has no children so it is up to others in his family to remember him.
