Dad's gone sailing.

Dad, where are you now?
I feel you near me,
Yet I know you cannot stay.
I hear you in the bird song,
'Good-bye-robi-bob' you say.
I see you in a Holy place,
That's kept so far away.
Sometimes I need to know,
So I look into my heart,
And there, I can always find you.

Well, what do you know.

Who'd have known it? Grandpa's got his own webpage at the AIF Project. As the entry indicates, he did not stay with the 9th Battalion. As it happened, his fellow Queenslanders fell ill just before embarkation in Perth but Grandpa (Ernie) did not. Hence, he was transferred from the 9th, raised in South East Queensland to the Western Australian 44th Battalion.

Stay and defend or leave early.

I've been sitting here trying to think what to say. I've got nothing.
