    •  Bill and Cheryl Howard Essendon, Melbourne (23rd of June 2012)
      “This is just a short note to thank you for the "impromptu tour" you provided for Cheryl and I back in early June.
      We met some Australians who were waiting for you to pick them up, and we talked about how difficult it was to find our way around. They suggested that we wait to see if you had room for two more when you arrived to pick them up, and it ended up being the best thing we did whilst in that part of France.
      The knowledge you have of what our countrymen did in WW1 is amazing, and if we were not proud Australians when we met you, we would certainly have been when we parted.
      We could almost regard you as an "honorary Aussie ". I am not sure how you could use this note, but we would be very happy to recommend you to any Australians who want to know the true role Australians played in the Somme battles of WW1..
      Thanks again..
