Thanks for leaving a notation for my Great Uncle Henry Blooman , died France 1917.of bayonet wounds to the stomach ..interesting life Ive discovered ,
He was born in East London,England , both my Grandmother Lydia and Henry, and their father ended up in workhouses..the 2 kids were in the same workhouse as Charlie Chaplin ..around the same time
Henry was the first of our family to emigrate to Australia landed Western Australia, where he worked as a farm hand (we thought we were the first )
He enlisted in the AIF in 1916.... so although he travelled 10000 miles to get away from his miserable early life, he ended up dying only about 100 miles(as the crow flies) from his birth.
I wish I could have found out more about his life in OZ...Im sure he would have appreciated it as much as we do. Thanks again Geoff Steel
I just wanted to say thank you for leaving a message for William Bretland who is buried in Boulogne Eastern Cemetery. He was my great grandfather and fought for Australia after leaving his family in England.
It's lovely to know that those who fought for us will always be remembered even by those who didn't know them personally.

Hi Dave - on my great uncle's page you have posted and I'm wondering if you knew of him or are related?
I'm gathering information for next year's centenery of Anzac Day for my son which is proving to be quite emotional.

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.
