Wordless Wednesday: Twelve Tree Copse Cemetery, Turkey

My second cousin three times removed was William Semple. His grandfather's parents emigrated to New Zealand from Scotland in 1862. William served with the Canterbury Infantry Regiment, New Zealand Expeditionary Forces in World War I. He was killed in action at Gallipoli Turkey on 8 May 1915.

My New Zealand cousin was able to visit Twelve Tree Copse Cemetery in 2000 and attend a sunrise service there in honor of her grand uncle, William. What a privilege!

The idea for this post came from Geneabloggers.
