61 HOWLETT, Stanley – MM




61 Stanley Lisle Howlett – MM

His letter of application for his Gallipoli Medal was simple and concise, providing only the basic details of his service.

He made no mention of being awarded the Military Medal or being wounded at Gallipoli.  He was clearly an extremely modest man and the writing of this letter perhaps a very difficult task, given the mere mention of Gallipoli would have always been a dreadful reminder of his younger brother Cecil’s death while they both served at Gallipoli.

A horrible reminder of the real cost of war and perhaps for Stanley Howllet M.M the less said in his letter the better.


His full story will be published soon
