Galbraith cousins fall in France

Cousins Albert and Alfred Galbraith lived a few doors from each other in Mackay Street, Essendon.  Alfred Galbraith, 21, died of wounds in 1916, and his cousin, Albert Galbraith, 23, died on the last day of the war - Armistice Day 1918.  Rod Martin tells their stories.

Mementos of Alfred have been lodged at Museum Victoria.
