Biographical Notes


Cenotaph (2 May 2014); Email contact from Ross Tindall to Tony Rippin, 2 May 2014, also commented: "In his obituary it said he was the first soldier to be wounded in Gallipoli. Is this true? Harold was highly decorated and featured in papers past a lot. I would love to know more and just received a box of letters but have not had time to go through them all ... have lots of photos and letters to a timaru lady mrs Luke that was his sponsor's mr geo Sinclair of Albury daughter" (See DM for the email)
