Column: Getting to know my great-grandfather "I very much enjoyed reading your column on your great-grandfather who died in the Great War. I often think of my grandmother's uncle, Ivan Newell Wallis, of Greensville who died in the Great War in Aug 1918 at the age of 20 years. I know a few things"

We had been to Italy three years ago and fallen in love with the country; its art, food, culture and way of life.
