Gunner Bill


This is a variation of my usual type of Tuesday photo.

However, on this day, 100 years after the first allied shot was fired in World War 1, we will remember them.

And pray it never happens again.


A photo surfaced over the weekend which I have never seen before, courtesy of my Auntie.

My then 25-year-old Grandfather in his dress coat of the

Royal Australian Garrison Artillery.

He was the same age as our eldest and a member of the gun crew which fired the first of World War 1

and my age when he passed away,

possibly from lingering effects of mustard gas.




Hope you enjoyed.
