Today we visited the ANZAC cafe [Polygon Wood], and met the owner Johan.
Johan is an engineer and has spent his time helping excavating trenches and also graves.
He has dedicated his time to finding missing soldiers. One said soldier was John Hunter. [Link]
John Hunter was buried by his brother facing toward Australia with his hands on his chest, the only one of the five found doing this. Johan felt a special connection to John and helped reunite the family.
Johan’s stories were very moving, and it was nice to meet someone so passionate about helping fallen soldiers.
