  • Hello Christine I am researching your great uncle Albert Victor Wills as part of a Christchurch City Libraries staff project to honour the soldiers who fought in World War 1. I work at Halswell library, and your great uncle's name is one of 17 names on the Halswell Memorial. The information we gather about the soldiers will be on http://ketechristchurch.peoplesnetworknz.info/ Do you have any information or photos you would be willing to share in order for me to provide more details of his life? Kind regards Ruth ruth.wilkins@ccc.govt.nz
