My Great Uncle whom I only met a handful of times. He lived a long and fruitful life. He helped me immensely with my family tree searches and shared with me a wealth of letters and photos for which I will be eternally grateful. God rest his soul.

Although we did not know our Grandfather well, through the photographs, old postcards and copies of dispatches and other documents, we feel like we have a window into his dedication and sacrifice during the Great War. Rest in peace Charlie.
