ANZAC in Hampshire 2012

By Paul and Carole Brooks

This photograph is  of our grandson - Air Cadet Jack Campbell (on the right)  - standard bearer at the Anzac Day Memorial Service in our local village churchyard (St Nicholas', Brockenhurst, Hampshire)  where there is an Anzac Memorial and 94 war graves. Those buried here are the sick and wounded from the Western Front  who were treated and died at the No. 1  New Zealand Hospital which was close by. It is organised each year by the RBL and always well attended.  Notably this year by Air Vice-Marshall Andrew Roberts CB CBE AFC FRAes, HE Mr Derek Leask - New Zealand High Commissioner, Chaplain J McPhee RNZAF and Air Chief-Marshall Sir Joe French KCB CBE CWGC.
