  • From the Military Personnel File. 'This gentleman is a New Zealander and has come to England at his own expense to do what he could at his profession for the sick New Zealand Soldiers in England. He has been attached to the Medical Staff at Hornchurch for nearly 4 months, during which time he has done excellent work and has proved indefatigable in his labours.' Worked as a Civillian Dentist at the New Zealand (Command) Depot, Hornchurch from the 13th of January 1916, under the authority of the High Commissioner. He was then taken on the strength of the Dental Corp with the rank of honorary Lieutenant.

    Court Martial Held at Etaples, 22nd August 1917, 'When on Active Service, conduct to the prejudice of good order and Military discipline, in that he, at Etaples, on the 1st August 1917, became unfit for duty, by reason of previous indulgence in alcoholic stimulants.' Wyett pleaded not guilty but was found guilty and sentence to be dismissed from His Majesty's Service as from 22nd of August 1917.

    Re-enlisted with the New Zealand Army Service Corp as a driver for Mechanical Transport. Recieved a temporary commission as Lieutenant for Transport duty on the SS. Rimutaka as a Dental Officer. AWMM
