  • Son of David and Jane (nee Burgess) Blackstock of Robson Road, Ngaere, Taranaki

    The Blackstocks arrived in Wellington as migrants onboard SS Arawa on 7 December 1908.

    Although it is impossible to know for certain, Blackstock was killed in action on the 26th of April 1915 either at Courtney's Post or at Plugge's Plateau, the Taranaki men having been located at both areas on that day. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Lone Pine Memorial. AWMM

  • We visited the battlefields of The Somme this week, and it prompted me to look up members of the family who were lost in the First World War. I think Irving Blackstock was a cousin of my gran, Mary Blackstock, son of her Uncle Davy. Gran was a nurse and served in Serbia in 1915 and then in London. It's very moving to see Irving's photograph, and so sad to think of him and all the other young men lost.
