Military Heritage & History

David’s family tree includes a military heritage shared by so many other Australian families, with Great Grand fathers who fought in WWI.

An interesting link to France is via David’s Great Grandfather, Arthur Lines, who served in and around Villers Bretonneux winning the Military Medal for gallantry. He remained in France, marrying a local French girl from Villers Bretonneux. (famous as the site of the Australian National memorial cemetery and where in 1918 the Australians fighting as an “Australian Army” stopped the German advance and turned the tide of the war.)
