Biographical information

  • Aka Puri Tea Aperahama. A Maori born in New Zealand (and said to be of "high birth"), he enlisted at the Liverpool Camp in Sydney while studying at Hawkesbury College. After serving at Gallipoli and in France, he returned in December, 1917 suffering from tuberculosis and dementia. He was scheduled for discharge in NSW, but his condition had worsened on the voyage aboard HMAT Belltana to the extent that he was taken from the ship when it landed in Melbourne and was transferred to the Royal Park Mental Hospital.

    He was later moved to 5 AGH in St. Kilda Road, Melbourne where he died on 18 January, 1918.

    Compounding the tragedy and perhaps explaining his mental condition was the fact that both his mother and the sister named as next of kin had also died of tuberculosis while he was overseas.
