I give my deepest respect to him and his friends that fought for this us and our future. Himself and all other ANZACS make me rpoud to call myself Australian a New Zealander. Thanks mate for today. And as I said my deepest respect.

Thanks for sharing cyber. Makes you proud to know you are descended from brave patriotic folk.
Do you know much of where he served?

My Grandad passed a few weeks ago in England. Was a member of the Shropshire Rifles initially, then the famous Scottish Black Watch Regiment. He was veteran of Dunkirk, Nth Africa and DDay. Said to have guarded Rudolph Hess after the War too.

Not trying to upstage, or compete, just sharing. Interesting stuff.

My great-grandfather's brother lied about his age (he was 15) to join the Army. He got killed when he was 19 years old in WW1. My grandfather (same family) worked on aircraft during WW2. My other grandfather was a Marine whilst they still lived over in the UK. He said he never saw combat, but saw some of the Japanese. To be honest, I'd wondered if he just said that because he didn't like to talk about it, but unfortunately, he's passed on so I can't ask.
