Lt. Colonel Charles Turner van Straubenzee

Emma recently visited the British War Cemetery in Prémont, France, to sing during a family ceremony for Lieutenant Colonel Charles Turner van Straubenzee (1876-1918), who died in the line of duty on 9th October, 2018, just over a month before the end of the First World War. Lt. Col. Van Straubenzee fought with the Royal Canadian Dragoons. Members of his family from Canada, the US, and Britain organised and attended a ceremony at his grave.

Who are we now? His legacy… our very selves.
