About the Author

Gordon spent most of his life in sales, public transport and Traffic Management. He managed traffic movements through and around major road work sites throughout Queensland. His last project was as Traffic Project Manager on the construction of the Gold Coast Light Rail throughout the City of Gold Coast.

After retiring to Queensland's Sunshine Coast in 2014, Gordon took in interest in researching his family. He discovered links back to the 1400's and even a distant link to the Royal Family of United Kingdom.

During his research, he discovered he had 6 relatives who fought in the Great War. He was familiar, with his relatives in the 2nd World War, but knew nothing about the men in his family who had fought in the Great War.
