Adelaide Advertiser - Saturday 28 December 1918, page 6
Sorry, Adelaide Register not Advertiser
Thank you Lindsay. No I hadn't seen them.
I'm surprised he survived the gassing. Tough dog.
Oh great article. Thank you. I will add it :)
Fantastic story Janilye. Dogs are wonderful... What unconditional Love they give to us. Digger was a brave, rugged, and loyal warrior.
I've had an account here for over a year but haven't been active. Now that the "Blog" idea is coming to the forefront - I am probably hooked and in the boat and posts like this would be why I would frequent this site.
Its more than the dry names,dates and tombstones. There are amazing stories just waiting to be told. This is one of them. I would love to run into something like this during my family research. What a great story - and so well penned.
TLBoehm, I have enjoyed reading your writings. Very crisp and informative. Keep them coming. A new delightful voice for FTC.
