JUL 2015 Kim Nielsen-Creeley sent me this e-mail:
"Our school is honouring two brothers
who lost their lives serving in WW II.
One of the young men, Henry James Brock drowned
after bailing out over the North Sea. His body was found on 4th
July 1945, and was interred at Hune in a ceremony officiated at the
graveside by Vicar
F Busch on 6th July 1945.
We are seeking permission to possibly use
an image of the memorial stone at
part of a permanent display. The Brock family contributed
generously to the building funds at Launceston Church Grammar School and
there is a fine building named for the brothers, who sacrificed so much.
Of course she got a number of photos!
On 11 November 2015 the Brock Memorial
was dedicated in honour of
Henry James Brock
well we made it through 11th
November. The Brock Memorial was dedicated yesterday and our School hosted
the largest Service we have ever had. The story of the brothers has captured
the hearts of many people. There has been a lot to consider, including the
situation around the entrance way to the original Brock Library which has
been enveloped by the Henrietta Cooper School of Music. We were careful not
to cover the original lintel over the original entrance.
I have been able to work with a great graphic
artist to realise the panels. The family have been very generous and have
shared realia which we displayed on the day. This included Jim and Joe's log
books and wings. Thank you for supplying the Hune churchyard images. The
places where the brothers rest are imaged at the bottom of the two panels in
subdued colour and work very well in the concept of the display. The family
have visited both places and this is a very important part of the narrative.
We have acknowledged you and your contact at
Hune, as we agreed.
With Kind Regards,
