    • Member of the Maori Pioneer Battalion attached to the New Zealand Tunnelling Company. AWMM
    • "A full-blooded Maori, named Harry Kelly, was before the Supreme Court charged with breaking and entering, and theft, it was stated the prisoner was induced to plead guilty hoping to get away with the Maori contingent.

      Mr Justice Cooper said the accused had previously served several months' imprisonment and would now be sentenced to twelve months' hard labour. "If the authorities think you can safely be released in order to serve your country," the Judge- added, "they may possibly take the responsibility."
