Now 5 years on from the posts below, but I too have been trying to find out more about Mostyn and Rhyl Fleming as they were also my father's uncles / my grandmother's brothers. I have found a couple of interesting websites that mention them but this one was a surprise. I lived in Balclutha for a while with my grandmother (Muriel Gunthorp nee Fleming) but I don't remember seeing the memorial. She did have some large bronze discs that were presumably given to the families of those who died in WW1. I now live in Sydney and can be contacted by telephone (the number is in the book). Regards Ross
