Biographical Notes

Daniel McNaul of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, was the son of John and Ellen McNaul, of Ballycastle, Ireland. In 1901 Daniel was a scholar at home with his parents and some siblings, at Drumacullin, Glen shesk, County Antrim. In 1911 he was still at home with his family at Tavnaghboy, Glenshesk, 19 years old, working as a general labourer. He set out from London for New Zealand on 18 September 1914 per the 'Ionic'. He had been here for two years when he enlisted in February 1917. Daniel's only surviving relatives at his death were two sisters and a brother in Northern Ireland. Permission was given to convey his medals to his brother Frank.
