Anzac Day

Posted: April 25, 2012 in Australia, England, Historical, notes

It seemed appropriate on Anzac Day to link to a post about Petty Officer Percy Kempster DSM Royal Australian Navy my wife’s grandfather.

Those of us in these little islands must never forget the sacrifices made by all the countries of the Empire, and then Commonwealth, in two world wars. I remember searching for my uncle’s grave on the Commonwealth War Graves site and finding one cemetery where  two English soldiers and forty four New Zealanders were buried!
