  • Son of Patrick and Mary Ellen Mahoney of Auckland



    "With a great deal of truth it might be said of Private F. Mahoney , D.C.M., now attached to B Company, 14th, that he is one of the most modest fellows on board ship. Private Mahoney tells the story of his deed on Gallipoli with as much reservation were he making a confession. He left New Zealand with the Fifth Wellington Battalion and, on the 8th of August, landed at Walker's Pier, and took part in the Suvla Bay attack, and after some stirring times, finished up on the Apex on November 27th, when he was sent back to Egypt with enteric . In the middle of August the Wiltshires, in company with other English troops, were holding a position on Hill 971, when they were forcibly driven out by the Turks. Seven members of that regiment were cut off from the main body during the attack, and for 14 days were completely isolated, subsisting on biscuits which they took from dead Ghurkas, and on obtaining water from a fortunate well supply. On the 14th day two of the party succeeded in getting through to the New Zealand lines and reported the plight of their comrades. Captain Grainy, of the Wiltshires, called for a volunteer to accompany him in an attempt to bring out the remainder, and Private Mahoney was the man to whom the task fell. After two attempts across country swept by Turkish machine-gun fire they succeeded in reaching the isolated men and after some great work, brought them safely in. One of the Wilts. had five bullets in him, and another two, and all were in a bad way. For his heroic action Private Mahoney was subsequently gazetted in orders at Lemnos as having been awarded the D.C.M. On the 14th March he returned to New Zealand, and three days before the 14ths left the Dominion, linked up with that Body".
