Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of George and Maria Jane Davey

    Mr Davey was unfit for active service but was fit for Home Service. Being a carpenter he was placed in the Ordnance Company.

    After hostilities ceased the Company was kept on at Trentham to make coffins for the influenza victims in the Wellington Area, as the undertakers at that time could not keep up with the demand.

    Sons, brothers served in WW1: Stanley Edward Davey (24/734) kia and Henry George Davey (24828). AWMM
