Captain Charles LittlerDeeds not words

Captain Charles Littler, of Devonport, Tasmania, and his sons Geoff and Guy all enlisted for World War One. The family motto was "deeds not words".

Captain Littler was the last Anzac to leave Gallipoli, where he was known as the Duke of Anzac.

Captain Littler was killed in action at Mouquet Farm, in France, on 3 September 1916.
