Tribute to my GrandFather William Jacob Ponton
Submitted by: Anne Chambers

My Grandfather had passed away before I was born of injuries that he received in world war one.His sons all fought for Australia in world war two and thankfully all returned home safely to loved ones.
You and your generation all left for war not knowling if you would return safely or not.  You did return to your loved ones but with bad health that kept you from being all you could be.  You lost your lost when you helped a women onto a train and overbalanced due to your war injuries and died.We will never forget the sacrifices that you made to help keep Australia a safe and free place for my family and me. 
You are in my thoughts and know that I will continue to ensure that my family and the generations to come never forget you
Your granddaughter Anne
