This is a bonus blog post today. It’s a coincidental thing which happened so it definitely wasn’t on my editorial calendar but I’m very happy to ditch the blog schedule when this happens!!
I went to the Fleece and Fibre Fair in Mt Pleasant (South Australia)
today to buy more lovely yarn and wool roving for my textile art. I already have photographs of ancestor’s graves from the nearby Mt Torrens cemetery so I wasn’t thinking genealogy when I left home.
The merchants selling their lovely wares.
In a little side room off the main hall I found these honour rolls and soldiers’ photos.
Frank Henry Hicks my first cousin once removed, who died on 10 October 1918, Israel.
There is more information about Frank on my family tree website.
Has this sort of unexpected genealogy happened to anyone else? Please share your stories in the comments as we’d all like to hear about them.

Those who paid the supreme sacrifice.
And I couldn’t help but include a picture of this chap at the Fair in his terrific Viking get up!!
