Bill Buck-My Grandfather

Bill,Ted and Lucy

Growing up I had a wonderful relationship with my Grandparents Bill and Lucy Buck.
Bill was a 1st world war Australian soldier who met my Grandmother while stationed in England.
He had grown up largely on a sheep station in NSW located next to the Darling River.
He was an amazing man who was not a great conversationalist as he had been involved in hand to hand combat in the war in Europe.
He tended to not want to talk about those days.
His wife Lucy was just a wonderful quiet lady who really spoilt all us grandchildren.
Bill was many of the unsung heroes of the war.
He once showed me his scars from bayonet wounds.
Tomorrow Australians and New Zealanders observe ANZAC day to remember the fallen in the world wars.
These men and women were absolute heroes in what they did.
Most not wanting to engage in warfare but believed it was their duty.
We remember them all with great gratitude and love.
