Lest I forget - 11-11-10

In Remembrance of our grandfather, George Gerard.

My Father’s Father.

Stationed in Palestine, Italy as well as other places I’m currently not aware of.

In Palestine exactly 70 years ago! (it’s so hard to believe really that it’s only 70 years ago!)

Prisoner of War for 4 years!!!

I promise…. I will never forget!! As will none of the rest of your proud family!

Love you Gramps… miss you.


I believe this is on the streets of Sydney, Australia.
That’s my Grandpa on the right.

Gramps… on the far right.
Don’t have any information on where or who with.

Above is Grandpa (on the far left) in Tel Aviv, Palestine where they were stationed.
In a Cafe called Cafe Ayyia (or Alyia) April 1940.
I believe it was in Palestine where he was captured.

Tarboy - Animated Short Film

Came across a truly brilliant Aussie animator recently… James Lee!

I highly reccomend watching all his short films on his website… especially the fantastic Pop Star short.

Definitely an artist to keep an eye on.

Tar Boy is his latest dynamite short film.

The soundtrack…the animation… the deeper meaning… everything just works beautifully!!
