Dutchman Gerry van der Ham came upon the War Memorial in Bridgetown, WA, in 1981.
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 memorial statue. His quest took 25 years and was finished a week before Gerry died in 2006.
Gerry van der Ham is our dad and this is his story.
