Maria writes: Thank you for a wonderful website with fascinating history. I am doing some research into 106 orphans from Ballarat Orphanage in Victoria, Australia who volunteered for service in World War 1. One of those was Pte George Phillip White who died of wounds at Netley on 10 August 1916 and was buried there. It was wonderful to see a photo of his grave. I would really appreciate it if I could have a copy of the photo. I am compiling a booklet (not for sale) on behalf of the not-for-profit charity which used to run the Orphanage. As many of these orphans had no other family, we are commemorating their stories and service for them. George's brother Herbert also served and was killed in action at Pozieres 5 days before George died.
