Biography contributed by Jacinta Ebbott

While my Aunt (Bessie/Bet) lived I remember on every Anzac Day she took out Frank's photo and she would say what a wonderful man he was.

Frank and Bessie were engaged to be married after the war.

When Frank died in his will he left his estate to my aunt and with the money she was able to build a shop which still stands today.

Sarah May (Bessie) Hartree never married.
