Reflection

ANZAC day at dawn, a great great grandson proudly speaking of his great great grandfathers bravery at Gallipoli, a powerful tribute about ‘normal people doing abnormal things under extreme conditions’

Our George – without children, grandchildren and great grandchildren!

George has a large family of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews…………custodians of his story in our Robinson/Holt history.

‘Far from the land of the island, the place that gave him birth. Somewhere in Belgium he is lying. He answered his country’s call: He died an Australian hero, Fighting to save us all’

  1. Our family (Emma 13, Matiu 7 and Mana Collis 3) visited George’s final resting place in 2009 and 2013 at Popperinge, Belgium. Definitely not forgotten. Shane Robinson, son of Alan, grandson of Claude Horace Robinson, Trousers Point, Flinders Island.

    • Hi Shane – I am so glad to hear you have already visited not once but twice!! I wonder if you gave cousin Gwen some photo’s? Interesting to see our Grandfathers names with Horace. My 10 year old Nephew is William Robinson, so on it goes.
