Visit to Gallipoli

As far as I know no-one from my wife’s family has ever visited the Helles Memorial to look up the name of Douglas Milroy. There is very little chance of a visit in the near future from any of us; who knows, maybe one day……

I was really pleased when a good friend, who had organised herself a trip to Gallipoli, offered to find Douglas’ name on the memorial and leave a small cross of remembrance for us. Thanks Lee.
