This site holds the stories, accounts, and histories handed to me by my parents and grandparents—and others I’ve been led to. Gathering, preserving, and sharing their legacy is my passion.

73rd Anniversary of Broome's One Day War
Mr. Dion Marinis of the Broome, Australia Historical Society sent this picture on March 3, 2015. It was the 73rd anniversary of the Japanese attack on Broome and the loss of so many innocents. John Morgan Rex, and the entire crew (save one) of the B-24 Liberator they were on, and the wounded and citizens they were attempting to evacuate to safety, were lost in the sea.
Thank you for remembering these patriots with these beautiful flowers.
Note: Until I get the size of my blog view fixed, these flowers will fill the screen nicer than my grandmother's soap recipe did.
