Thank you, Dave for your memorial for my great uncle. It is lovely. He was killed in battle only six days after he arrived in France. He was buried in a temporary grave- a photo of which was sent to his parents - and after the war was re-interred in Warlencourt British Cemetery, France, a photo of which was sent to his parents giving details of his burial plot which I always thought was a lovely touch. Thank you again.
|Christie Young||William George Robertson|
Thankyou for leaving your tribute to William George Robertson.
William was one of three brothers who served in the Great War. His eldest brother Donald Robertson MM was an Anzac Provost killed at Daours in 1918.
His other brother James Morely Robertson MM served with the 37th Battalion and returned to Australia.
William was a Bombardier with the 6th Australian Field Artillery Brigade and was attached to the 106th Howitzer. He was killed at Zillebeke Lake on 3/11/17.
Sadly we have no known photos of the three boys only photos of their graves.

Thanks for leaving your tribute on my great uncle's grave.
One of our original Australian patriots who died soon after arriving in France during the battles at Pozieres.
His journey to rest in the Poziers cemetery was a long one having been buried in a temporary grave in 1916 and then his remains taken to Poziers in 1924, where he's finaly at rest with his comrades.
His photo is now on his entry here.

Thanks so much for leaving flowers on my Grandfather's page. Only 59 Commonwealth graves in Marcinelle Communal Cemetery in Belgium - 10 of them unidentified - but you took the time to pay a visit and remember.

Great photo, He was my 1st cousin 2x my Great Great Aunty Mary Ann Tighe, who died very young & James Gilmore's first wife. I never thought we had family who died in France but I have been following the stories closely, & find that it brings another meaning & heartfelt pain & pride. Thank you for his photo it means so much to put faces to names.
Thought you might be interested, I have posted a pic of him on his memorial.

|mareed||Three Delaney Brothers|
I see you have been busy and found another Ausi grave in France.
Three Delaney brothers served their King & Country. They are related through a cousins family.
Edward James Delaney was killed and buried at Fleurbaix, Department du Pas-de-Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Clais. He died on the 3 July 1916......the same day his brother Henry Joseph Delaney left Australia for England. He died 21 Apr 1917, buried Villers - Bretonneux, Department de la Somme, Picardie.
After the death of the second brother, their sister who was living in Melbourne at the time wrote to Army headquarters asking that her other brother Micharel who joined in 1915 be found and sent home. He was found wounded in a hospital in England. So the Army organised for his to be sent back to Australia and discharged from service. "SAVING PRIVATE DELANEY."
