Biographical information

  • Son of Hannah Catherine and Emanuel Levy of Dunedin. First enlisted in the Australian army and served in Egypt. Then possibly served in the Canadian Mounted Rifles before enlisting with the Royal Flying Corps. Then enlisted with the New Zealand army in London, but was discharged shortly afterwards for enlisting under a false name in March 1917. Subsequently joined the Merchant Navy and died when the SS Halifax was presumably sunk by a U-boat off the Azores in December 1917.
