  • You my Grandfather is remembered and was loved. Today, 100 years on, I learn in detail of your contribution to WW1 and the years you gave with the NZEF. On the 25th April 2015 I will walk in our local Anzac Parade and remember you for what was and what you meant to your family and your country New Zealand.
