To My Grandfather
Submitted by: Kylie Sommerfeld

This is to acknowledge the service of my grandfather and his brother, Frederick, during the Egypt, Gallipoli and Somme Campaigns.  I wear your medals with pride every ANZAC day and as a teacher, share your stories with my students.  They really enjoy hearing them each year, insisting that they make ANZAC day special to them as well.  They love to hold the rising sun that you wore on your hat, as do I.  I can't imagine what you experienced while wearing it there.  I wanted to take it to Gallipoli this year to remember 100 years on, but I was unlucky in the ballot.  I will make the journey in the next few years so that your badge can revisit Gallipoli again, only this time during peacetime.  Your memory remains within our hearts.
