I stopped to look at 2 Australian war graves cemeteries near Amiens, France and found three Sinclair boys who didn't make it home during world war 1. I was very impressed to see the condition that the two sites were in. They are still beautifully maintained by the commonwealth war graves commission some eighty years after the war. Do any of these boys belong to you??
