    What a great story and one that I'm sure you will cherish forever. It is wonderful that you have these treasures that remind you of their love and his service. Perhaps I could give you a hand with locating your grandfathers service records and enlistment papers etc? A great percentage of Australian documents have now been digitized and are available for anyone to view. Let me know if I can help with anything, as I have found many interesting notes and documents relating to my Great Grandfather who fought in the First World War.

    Best wishes,
    Josh

    (In case you dont know if you go the Australian War Memorial website,you can search for him in the Nominal Rolls as well as obtain his service records )

    Great photos Marc, you will find loads of info on in the national archives website, it is very comprehensive. You are certainly lucky to have such a fantastic photographic record of your grandfathers time in the military, I'm sure you'll look after them well and keep them for your kids. Great stuff mate!

    Some great photos and history Marc !!

    Many of the photos show the old 25 pdr Field Gun the standard gun of the British and Commonwealth forces during the war , it was a great piece of kit i was one of the last ones to train on it in the late 70's.

    Looks like he also may have been on the 5.5 Medium guns as well.

    Always nice to see the history of a fellow Gunner,

    cheers

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
