Lambert



Job




James






Jack



Tom




The Barkers



Four Brothers and their Father

went to war

They went to war to fight for their country.

Tom returned from Gallipoli (wounded).

Jack (John) was killed in action at the

Battle of Messines.(aged 17 years)

One month later his Father, Jim (James)

was killed in action,

at the Battle of Messines.(aged 46 years)


Job (my Grandfather) was brought home at the

request of his Mother on compassionate grounds.

Job didn't finish the journey to his hometown.

He alighted from the train at the station

before his hometown

as he didn't want to be thought

of as a coward by the townspeople

who had all turned out to welcome him home.


Lambert returned from the war after 5 years

at the end of the war

and died from

gas exposure in his early forties.





I get a lump in my throat when I

think about this story.







mixed media on canvas 1.7m x 1.5m


I hope to have this finished by the

end of the week.
