Crunchy, if it is ok I'd like to add three other Aussie boys to yours. They are Frank Donaldson, of the 60th AIF, died of wounds in the field in front of the VC Corner Memorial which now bears his name, and Albert Johnston of the 59th and Lisle Sutherland of the Australian MGC, buried in the same grave at Rue du Bois. All killed on Wednesday 19th July 1916 near Fromelles. Thanks to @frev we have this letter from Frank's brother Don as testimony to his brother's passing. Young Frank 'died game'.

 

Not forgotten,

 

Pete.

Of course Pete. Good to remember them. All brave men.  

 

The first two of mine are relatives, the third is an indigenous Australian who was part of the family, and the last two my RMC Classmates.

 

Cheers

Chris

Thanks for that Chris, I thought your names would be special to you. Well remembered.

 

Pete.
