Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm 65 years young; an ex serviceman who served 12 years in the Australian Regular Army, with no overseas service, in the foodstuffs and stores section in the Royal Australian Army Ordnance Corps (RAAOC).
Upon my discharge I went out and mowed lawns in my local area for 15 years until an old Army problem emerged. I fell from the high-beam in the gym and injured my lower back and am now on DVA pension for the problem. I'm now a Gold card holder and on the Aged Pension so have plenty of time on my side.
I live at Cleveland, in beautiful sunny Queensland in one the best and safest countries in the world - AUSTRALIA.
I took up military research about 30 years ago when I went to the National Archives (NAA) here in Brisbane and found they had records of all Queensland service personnel who had served in World War 2 and beyond. Anyone can access records that over 30 years old.
So with the information I had on hand I began to compile a large database on these soldiers and when DVA put out their World War 2 Nominal Roll if gave me the information I required to carry on.
Am now got myself interested in Cemetery graves and have started on Hemmant Cemetery. So if you need a Hemmant Cemetery grave photo then please ask me. Permission will be required to use my photos no matter where you wish to place them and this includes

Muriel Butler
Trooper David Pearce

Choose the memorial containing the most info, and delete the other.

I thought there was one of the names on my list that I had sent previously.

I am on the site roughly half an hour each fortnight. Hopefully things will begin to get better within the year, and I will be able to spend more time on the site.

Muriel Butler
Australian Afghanistan Casualties
Hello John

You and Bevo sort it out between yourselves, give me a list of the names and I will share with you both.

RE: Afghanistan
I think Muriel's was created first John. I haven't deleted them yet though. I think it's because some have the cemetery details and some don't. I have only just discovered that web site I sent you so am slowly going through it. This time I will just check with name and year of death.

Hi John. Going to go through this list to see how many I have duplicated. Found two already!

RE: Re Richard Edward Atkinson
Sorry John just realised that I have duplicated with Muriel. But the memorial is for Pvt Grant Walter Kirby memorial 132884211. I will go through all mine again and if I find any (not duplicated) I will transfer them to you.

RE: Re Richard Edward Atkinson
No problem John. On another note I have a soldier that I would like to transfer to you if that's ok.

I know you did this almost two months ago, and I apologize about not messaging before this, but thank you so much for taking a picture of my great grandparent's grave!
