    It is confronting to see these pictures as my great grandfather remains on board

    But also I now know what the site looks like to a degree

    Lest we forget

    As we approach 75 years since the loss of so many, the Leask Family reflects at the awful loss of our 3 Uncles, Harold, Alexander and Henry. It was a hard reality when the ship was found and photographed, but it did lay to rest 67 years of not knowing and a deep sad grief that our parents Mal and Orba carried all of their lives. In recent months our first born of the family, Alexander passed away, notes in the latest newsletter. It helped him enormously to know where it was and head out on the ship to place flowers and be above the Centaur. Time to reflect.
