Busy, busy, busy...

A stream of calls off the back of the notice in VetAffairs and now the Blackwood Times (I haven't got my copy as yet...) have added a few more names to my list.

I've had calls from relatives of:

  • Lieutenant Rob Reid, MC (who used to be the Blackwood carpenter and had a shop in the corner of the roundabout where the bank now is);
  • Private Lance Lightfoot (who was captured by the Turks at Gallipoli and who lived in Eden Hills between 1932 and 1942);
  • Second Lieutenant Arthur Hall, MM (from Coromandel Valley);
  • Lance Corporal Percy Scroop (from Coromandel Valley); and
  • Private Herbert Sydney Clark (who lived in Willunga St Eden Hills after the war).

Lance and Herbert were new names...

I also chatted with some of the people who have done the research behind the Coromandel Valley Primary School Roll of Honour, and am planning to attend the Remembrance Day ceremony at the school.
