Fine record of Service

My maternal Great-Grand-Uncle Thomas Fitzherbert MORGAN and his wife Sarah MCNAY were married in Victoria in 1894.
Thomas was born at Euroa in 1868, Sarah at Moonee Ponds in 1873.
They had eleven children born between 1895 and 1918, eight boys and three girls who, all except one of the girls who died of Meningitis at the age of 12, survived to adulthood.  One son, William was killed in World War One and another son Benjamin died in a German P.O.W camp in World War Two.
