My Grandfather's grave headstone
I never knew my grandfather. He died before I was born - of gas poisoning which caused him respiratory problems. He was exposed to the gas during his time on the battlefields during the First World War. His death and burial occured in Hamilton on return from the War.

This grave is in the Hamilton East Soldiers' Cemetery.
