Hello Gary

Re Robert Smyth..

My gr granny's sister Charlett Thompson married a Robert James Smyth...any relation? My great granny was Sarah Thompson who married James Campbell. Another sister was Margaret Thompson who married Robert Plews.

My heart aches when I read the ages of these young men. A beautiful tribute to them. We never seem to learn about the futility of wars. My ancestors came from this area to Australia in 1853
