Christine and Marcia also speak about Noel’s uncle Sam Browning who served in World War 1, where he sustained lifelong injuries as a result of being gassed. Mary and her daughters also mention Sam’s son Gordon who served in World War 2, and they share other stories about their family history. The Brownings are very proud of their family’s history of service and participate in Anzac Day services every year.
