A mother's love ... Australians in love and war
Love takes many forms. Love of parents, siblings, partners and friends. Jack Edmondson enlisted in the army during World War II, when he was 26. He had a particularly special bond with his mother, Maude. She treasured being his mum, "from his tiny days to the day of his going away".
