Three brothers from Longford disembarked Tasmania on the same ship heading for World War I but only one would return from the European battlefields.
Only William survived past the war and returned home to Longford, as his two brothers were killed in combat during WWI.
Fast forward to 2019 and their great, great nephew Ryan Badkin is in the Royal Australian Regiment representing the second battalion in the 60th Cambrian Patrol and finished second in the world.
Exercise Cambrian Patrol is an annual world-class challenge organised and run by the 160th Welsh Brigade and attracts the best 80 teams from armies worldwide because it's deemed the world's toughest patrol event.
Mr Badkin and his seven counterparts walked more than 65 kilometres across the Welsh highlands but before the challenge he was unaware he would be paying homage to a fallen relative too.
Although George has no known grave after his death on July 7 1917, Mr Badkin's battalion visited Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, Belgium where his great, great uncle is commemorated.
George's name is one of 6178 Australians remembered at the memorial who served in the Ypres campaign and who have no known grave.

Mr Badkin said his battalion had planned to visit a Western Front battleground but had not decided which one until they got to Wales.
"It was only once we got over there and I mentioned I had a great, great uncle buried at Menin Gate we decided to go there," he said.
"I'm probably the first person in our family to go there and see it.
"I didn't really know about George very long before the competition, Mum (Roxie Williams) knew she had uncles and mentioned she found out one of them was at the unmarked grave in Ypres."
His RAR second battalion competed in a national event in Australia and won to qualify for the international event.
In the Welsh challenge Mr Badkin and his team carried about 35 kilograms of equipment, water and food.
"I'd been to the Australian challenge but I had never been to the one overseas," he said.
"It wasn't too bad because it's only over a span of 48 hours and I think we finished it in 36 or 38 hours, but it was a lot of walking up mountains."
