ANZAC day 2015

The Claremont Memorial stands where the 40th Battalion was raised in 1916.

Mum’s Great Uncle Baizel Elliss died at Gallipoli 16 June 1915, his address at time of enlistment was Berriedale, near Claremont. Baizel’s elder sister Isabel Rust and her young family lived at Claremont.

Dad’s Uncle George Robinson/Holt died on the Western Front in 1917. George would spend several months camped at Claremont after enlistment.
