Remembering our great uncle, Harold Armour Molony, 2175, Australian Infantry, AIF, 17th Battalion who was one of 4 cousins from Albury, NSW, Australia to give their lives during WW1.

What a tragic waste of young lives - Harold was just 19 years of age.

His brother Francis Molony 2175 was killed in France on 15.4.1917. Another of Harold's older brothers, Charles (who was our grandfather) died in a coal mine explosion in Huntly, NZ in Sept 1914.

Reading through his records it appears that he may be one of the identified burials at Dochy Farm New British Cemetery Plot V11 B9.

This photo was taken just a few months prior to his death.

We will remember them with pride.

A handsome boy, and a very brave one. A horrible way for his brother to die. My thoughts and prayers are with them both.
