Biographical information

    • Son of David and Jessie Swann of 13 Helena Street, Dunedin AWMM
    • 'Two Hillside Men'
      We have just received news, adds our Hillside correspondent of the death, killed in action, of another of our brave boys, Private George Swann, who left with the 13th Reinforcements, and so was about two and a half years on active service. He was also a member of the Cricket Club, a bright, manly lad, and well-liked by all with whom he came in contact. Our sympathy goes out to his widowed mother and the family. They have only the memory of the life cut short. He bravely fought and nobly died". Railway Review, 20 September 1918, p 436 Public - Jenifer - Researcher - 5 September 2017 - Railway Workers' Obituaries : New Zealand History : www.nzhistory.govt.nz
