  • Photo of Tony Shia– This is a picture I had found in our Band's digital archives and thought I would keep it for my collection. I never knew my uncle Tony, however his half brother (my Dad, Lucy's Son), Andrew Perswain would speak of him often.  My Dad was also a private with the PPCLI, but was too young to see partake in combat.
