Wesley Anzac Bennett
Date Posted
Wesley Anzac Bennett stayed in Sydney before going to the African campaign where he died in 1941. He met and became friends with my mother, Joan Bright, who lived in Walker Street, North Sydney. Her family owned Bright's Florist shop and Joan kept it going during the war. They exchanged photos and letters. Wesley gave her his fern leaf badge before he left for action. He had his and her photos made in Egypt with a pyramid in the centre. We still have these momentos today. All we were told was that he came from a farming area and was a boundary rider. We would love to know if he has family still in New Zealand.
