Just a reminder – Patrick Leo McCartin, Australian War Memorial – last post


PLEASE, set your alarms or whatever, but if you can, please take the chance to view the live feed of the Last Post for Leo McCartin today/ tomorrow morning.

The ceremony is streamed live, so with regional adjustments this means the service will be able to be watched:
05:55 – United Kingdom (London)
18:55 – New Zealand  (Wellington)
00:55 – Canada (Ottawa)

The live stream of the ceremony can be viewed here.

The McCartin crew are well documented within this blog an Op history for the crew can be found here and the incredibly moving and poignant collection of correspondence between Leo’s Father and the Australian War Ministry, after the crew’s first report as being lost can be read here.

    Thank you so much Simon for what you are doing. I posted a comment at the end of that painful chain of correspondence but it must still be in “moderation”. Only a couple of hours now until the Last Post ceremony. Kindest regards Robin Page Nephew of WOff Frank Albert Page, RAAF, Bomb Aimer, Burke Crew.

      Hello Robin – my sincerest apologies for the delay in approving your first comment – I suspect the time difference has caught us ! I have just finished watching the Last Post and have to now get ready for work – I’ll be in touch by email, hopefully later today
