Hello Stacey, I was very interested to read about your writing endeavour. Was your grandfather nicknamed 'Booter'? My grandfather was Edwin McCrohon who was Ernest's brother and according to our family's understanding, they enlisted together at Stanthorpe. I was pleased to be able to extract my gf's history from this site. He was knocked about pretty badly and finished up back home in 1916. They were certainly in business together at Tingha after WW! and both names are on the Honour Board in the Anglican Church there. I don't know what real help I can offer but if there are any assignments you want to give me, I would be happy to try and assist. Have you read Ion Idriess's "The Desert Column"? If you can get a copy, I think you may find it useful. If you are interested in previous family history, I have a comprehensive picture of it all including some interesting photo's. My e-mail address is 'imccrohon@ozemail.com.au' and I live in Melbourne. Kind regards, Ian McC.
