Dan returns to find George

March 1953 Dan on retirement visited Georges grave fulfilling an oath he probably made to George the day he died and again the day the guns fell silent. An epic adventure given his poor health and age.

Dan’s family has loaned us letters he wrote to the war commission seeking the information he so required to find George’s grave before leaving Whitemark.

Dan had his camera with him and took a photo of Georges headstone he gave to Horace when he returned home.

Dan died just over 12 months after returning from his trip to Belgium and the UK …..his grave is a stones throw from Georges mother Emily and eldest brother Tuck.
