Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

Anzac Day; QX 5005 Cpl Harry Skyring Baylis

As a personal touch to the day, Cpl Baylis was my mother’s cousin.  He was killed in action on the 10th of November 1942, which according to the history of the 2/33 would have been at Gorari in PNG (7-11 Nov 42).
While this was going on, my father was involved in the battle of El Alamein.
