  • Son of Mrs M. Braitwaite of Auckland

    John Braithwaite was one of 28 New Zealand servicemen who were court-martialled and sentenced to death during the First World War. He was one of 5 executed.

    He was accused of mutiny after he and several Australian and Scottish prisoners were found guilty of provoking a strike in the military prison in Blargies, France where all were serving sentences for offences against military law. Conditions in the prison and punishments were severe and their protests resulted in Braithwaite being executed.

    A Private Member's Bill was put before the New Zealand Parliament in September 1998 by the MP for Invercargill, Mark Peck, to pardon the soldiers executed. This became the Pardon for Soldiers of the Great War Act 2000 which pardoned the five soldiers. The purpose of the act was 'to remove so far as practicable, the dishonour that the execution of those five soldiers brought to those soldiers and their families.
