Biographical information

    • WALSHE Denis Byrne. Denis Walshe was born c1880 in Victoria, Australia. Dr Walshe completed his degree at Melbourne University. He was resident surgeon at Thames Hospital from 1907. In May 1918, Dr Walshe requested a years leave so that he could serve abroad; the Thames Hospital Board granted his request.(v) A farewell was held for Dr Walshe and the people of Thames sent the family off in great style.

      'They all admired his spirit, and they felt a stronger respect for him on account of his desire to take part in the struggle. When he was in France the people knew there was another New Zealander there who would do his duty.'(vi)

      The Thames Star reports that Dr Walshe was in one of the camps during the influenza Epidemic November 1918. It would appear that he therefore never left for overseas, but rather was stationed at one of the camp hospitals (along with Matron Wilson of Thames, who was also mentioned in the newspaper).

      Dr Walshe returned to Thames Hospital in 1919, only to leave a year later in March 1920. The doctor had completed 13 years service at Thames Hospital. Walshe returned to Auckland to work in private practice. Dr Walshe died in Auckland in 1927, and is buried at Hillsborough Cemetery, Auckland Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 10 November 2016 - http://www.thetreasury.org.nz/wardoctors.htm
