Some faces for the names
With recent additions to Papers Past and the Auckland Library "Heritage images on-line" some images of Captain John's grandsons have come to light. We still have no image of the man himself.
Stanley George Austen (Son of George Austen) from the wounded lists in the Auckland Weekly News 17 June 1915. [Sir George Grey Special Collections, Auckland Libraries, AWNS-19150617-41-34]
Sydney Frances Postlewaight was the son of Caroline Austen. This is from the Auckland Star 11 Nov 1916.
Percy Arthur Postlewaite was also Caroline Austen's son - the spelling of his name seems to have changed about the time he enlisted for the First World War. This is from the Auckland Weekly News 16 September 1915. Sir George Grey Special Collections, Auckland Libraries, AWNS-19150916-39-16
