Alexander Charles Hadfield

From the Auckland Weekly News of 14 Sep 1900. Auckland City Libraries website; not identified there as other than 'Corp Hadfield'. I have researched this gent through Papers Past, and have no doubt that it is an image of Alexander Charles Hadfield. He was invalided home from South Africa suffering from Typhoid. He is my second cousin 3x removed.

Corporal Hadfield
