  • Attested at Alofi on 1 October 1915.

    Service reckons from 14 October 1915.

    Departed Alofi, Niue Island on 14 October 1915 on board SS 'Te Anau'. (Pointer 2000, p. 13)

    Arrived Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand, on 19 October 1915.

    Sailed from Alexandria, Egypt, to Marseilles, France, on board SS 'Ivernia' on 20 May 1916.

    Attached to strength, Hornchurch, [Essex, England], on 5 June 1916.

    Recorded as dangerously ill (pneumonia), Hornchurch, on 28 June 1916.

    Died of pnuemonia, Hornchurch Hospital, on 30 June 1916.

    He died 30 June and was the fourth and last Niuean to be buried in the St. Andrew's churchyard. The entry in the church diary is of special significance. 'July 3 [1916] - Burial of His Highness the Prince Rangitira (known as Prince Moki), Private 16/1088, New Zealand Expeditionary Force, Base Depot. Prince Moki, who was 21 years of age, was the son of the ruling chief of the Island of Niue. He had seen active service in Egypt and on the French Front. He died of pneumonia at Grey Towers Camp....'". (Pointer 2000, p. 52)

    Private Moki was buried on 3 July 1916 and because of a shortage of space in the churchyard, he lies in a shared grave with Private Vasau. (Pointer 2000, p. 183 n16).

    Moki's campaign medals were sent to his father Pokihega, of Fatiau, Niue Island, and later his scroll (issued 21 June 1921) and memorial plaque (issued 01 February 1922).
