Spencer Parkes Picture (at last!)

I am indebted to Mark Tucker for sharing a link to this picture of Spencer. After much research into this cousin Spencer’s WW1 experience and sad end, after following his footsteps at Passchendale, and having had the privilege of representing him in 2017 by special invitation as a descendant at the Passchendaele 100 Memorial Services at the Menin Gate and Tyne Cot Cemetery, it is at last wonderful to be able to put a face to the story. The picture comes from The Virtual War memorial of Australia.

Spencer’s story can be read on these two pages in this blog: Spencer Parkes and Spencer’s final days.

  1. Hi Richard,
    Spencer was my Great Great Uncle on my mother’s side of the family. It was great to be able to share Spencer’s photo with you. Keep up the good work with your blog.
