Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Frank Reid was the son of Charles and Margaret Reid. Born at Clareville.

    He was working for the Post and Telegraph Company, and an acting Postmaster when he went to war.

    Sling Camp was the main base for New Zealand troops in Britain. Reinforcements arriving in Britain were sent there for training. Soldiers from the front also went there to convalesce. It was universally unpopular, being bleak and damp and miles from anywhere. AWMM
