Grateful great, great, granddaughter
Submitted by: Tess Pennell
   

Albert Hembury is my great, great grandfather, and it was wonderful to be able to learn more about him through the service records available on Honouring ANZACS. 

My family still treasures a pin that Albert gave to his sweet heart, my great, great, grandmother, Isabella Catherine (Kate) before he left for the war. The bluebird represents happiness and love.  Kate was born 100 years before me, to the day, and I hear about her often. 

According to our Hembury family history book, Albert was a wonderful man and a loving grandfather, father and husband. " With a twinkle in his eye, he would refer to Kit as 'she who must be obeyed' " (300 Year History of the Hembury Family). 

As well as being a part of the shaping of Australia's history, Albert Hembury returned from war and shaped my family history. 

I am truly grateful for the sacrifices and courage of not only this brave man, but of all of our ANZACS.
