  • I became fascinated with the life of Daniel William Pierce when sitting in our local church and looking at the Roll of Honour for WW1. Researching, I found that he lived in the cottage opposite me in Ebony before emigrating to New Zealand over 100 years ago. Why? How did he know that there was employment - no www in those days. I have yet to visit his grave at Wulverghem Lindhoek Road, but will do so before the 100th anniversary of his death in June 1917. I am happy to hear from anyone who knows any more about his past life. He gave up his new life for King and Country. Lest We forget. PS: I notice that the Pierce family has laid poppies for him above - are they in the UK now, or NZ?
