Charles Hagen was one of my Great Uncles. He and his brother William (Uncle Bill) both served and returned from the war to live long lives. I remember Uncle Charlie as an old man, however I also remember the beautiful photo in Grandma’s loungeroom of him in his Lighthorse uniform with the feathers in his hat.

I grew up hearing about how much this man was loved by his youngest child.
I would love to have met him but that wasn’t to be - only hearing about him from my Nana - his baby and reading the lovely letter he sent her for her 7th birthday from Gallipoli. His wife, my great-grandmother was an impressive woman and through my memories of her and through Nana I have always felt a link - one day soon I hope to visit his grave in Gallipoli just to feel that bit closer to my great-grandfather.
