Forebear Friday

This one's in honour of ANZAC day.

I haven't done much research on Bert, but he served in the defence force (not sure which one) and died in 1915 during WWI. He is a Great Uncle or Cousin or something I think. There was a little note written about him from another relative in a letter sent to my Great Grandmother, it says "Isn't it sad poor old Bert got killed. It was for a grand cause and some of us have to go under and I hope with a smile when it does come." The man who wrote this came back alive.

God Bless Bert and so many others who went off bravely to do their best for us.

I have a family photo almost identical to yours. Such a sad time but we are so grateful for their service.

Our family has a number of photos of young men in uniform getting ready to go off and serve in the great war.

May we never forget their sacrifices.
