Australia Remembers – The Carr Family

Australia Remembers – The Carr Family

The Carr Family came to Australia in 1925. Mr and Mrs Carr traveled with seven children to Australia with another three born in Australia. Out of the ten children, five males and one female wanted to support Australia and signed up for WW11. They all served in various roles, were proud courageous Australians. Unfortunately all were killed.

All six Carr children passed, leaving their four youngest siblings. Today the oldest remaining sister is Margret Hinton 97, who lives happily at Eumundi with her daughters and grand children taking great care of her. Evelyn Thomson is 84, Violet Gray lived most of her life in Toowoomba and Grace, the youngest is at Kingaroy.

These notes were passed onto Currumbin RSL from Mrs Julieann Carr, daughter of Andrew Carr, one of the siblings killed at War – but never forgotten.
