    “News has been received that Captain Hill Wilson White, R.A.M.C., was killed in France on April 12th last. He was sent in medical charge of a battalion to meet a terrific onslaught of the Germans, in the course of which, most of the men engaged were killed or wounded. He was reported "missing," and the Army Council now presume that he was killed. The Colonel wrote in the highest terms of his gallantry in attending to the wounded in the midst of heavy shell fire. He was born in Kaiapoi in June, 1885, when his father, who is now Dean of Christ Church, Dublin, was incumbent of that parish. His younger brother, Gerald I. S. White, 2nd Lieutenant, Royal Irish Regiment, was killed at the Somme in July, 1916; and an elder brother, Henry Vere White, who was also born in Kaiapoi, is captain in the Army Service Corps, and at present with our victorious troops in the Rhine Provinces.” [Press, Volume LV, Issue 16431, 27 January 1919, Page 8] AWMM
