Dear Great Uncle Arthur,
As a small child I stayed at your home in Brisbane with my parents.  Great Aunt Ellen was very ill.  You spent time with me and showed me some of your memorabilia from the olden days and war time postcards filled with writings and especially your piccolo which you played for me.  I liked you.  I have seen that War Records recorded my Grandfather, Norman Garnett Beresford, listed as your Nephew.  I felt happy in the knowledge that in the far away lands of raging war and during those unimaginable times long ago that you took comfort perhaps knowing that you were both there and maybe even saw each other at some point or had some contact as I know news from 'home' was did not reach my Grandfather.  Your bravery and my Grandfathers and so many, many others have kept our country free.  I will remember always.
Your Grand-niece,Colleen Richards
