A token of honour to 46 men who left their country to fight in a place far away from home and never came back… and to the man who found them
In 1981, Dutchman Gerry van der Ham came upon a War Memorial in Bridgetown, Western Australia.
Because of a chance encounter with one of the residents, he decided to make it his lifework to find
the final resting places of the 46 men whose names are on the statue.
His quest took 25 years and many trips to Belgium, France, Turkey and Germany.
It was finished a week before Gerry died in 2006.
He treated his mission like a search for his lost brothers.
Gerry van der Ham is our dad and this is his story.
