    • There is also a 'Henry Driscoll' that enlists from Dunedin, 17 February 1902 for the 9th Contingent. He is a Saddler Sergt. # 7629, his mother is Mary Driscoll of Kaiapoi and born in 1876. I believe this Henry Driscoll is possibly the same person as Henry Driscoll # 2467 of the 5th & # 4716 of the 7th Contingents. Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 7 August 2015 - Research
