"Well expensive Jim it breaks my center to write down this letter. Our pricey [brother] was once killed the day before today morning at 5.30. The bullet killed him immediately and he by no means spoke a notice. I had simply left him and long gone down the ditch to determine the opposite lads whilst i used to be known as again. Oh Jim it truly is awful…Oh I do wish he's the last…"

It is April 27, 1918, Jim’s brother writes from the battlefields of France. of 5 brothers serving at the Western entrance, 3 have given their lives; one other has been hospitalised. Six agonising months of brutal battle have been but to be endured…

The nice battle was once a mindless tragedy. Its lengthy shadow darkened the 4 corners of the realm. In Mologa, Victoria, as soon as a bustling group, stands a lonely stone memorial. Etched in the granite are the names of the Marlow brothers and their buddies; a testomony to bland those that turned heroes.

Anzac Sons consists from a suite of over letters and postcards written by means of the brothers who served, 4 within the thirty eighth Battalion and one other within the second gentle Trench Mortar Battery. From the educational grounds of Victoria, Egypt and England, to the Western entrance battlefields - Pozieres, Bullecourt, Messines, Menin street, Passchendaele, Villers-Bretonneux and the village battles of 1918 – this compelling real tale was once compiled through the granddaughter of a surviving brother. She takes us on her trip as she walks within the footsteps of her ancestors.

This is a narrative of mateship, bravery and sacrifice; it's a heartbreaking account of a family members torn aside through battle. it's a pledge to by no means forget.
