Filipe Medeiros It's an eerie and moving thing to see a photo of such a happy baby with so much potential, and to think ahead to his life and death while he stares back at me.

Do you have more details about his life?

Tanya Hegarty Hiya. Well I know he moved to Australia with his parents Bertha Haworth and Frank Maskell and then he came back to fight the second world war. He died and his grandmother always hoped he would come back to see her before she died but he never did. Maybe he planned on it after the war but didnt make it :( I dont have any recent photos of him, there isnt a lot of information really. If you can find any, let me know :)
