Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • Allan Burns was the son of Mrs. J. Burns, 1 Richmond Street, South Dunedin. AWMM
    • 'Death of Private Burns'
      It is with regret that we have to chronicle the death of Lance-Corporal Burns, who was killed at the Dardanelles. Mr Burns was a member of the Masterton Branch, and did duty as platform porter at the Masterton station, and later transferred to Carterton. When war broke out he enlisted with the Main Expeditionary Force, and saw fighting at the first landing at the Dardanelles. He was wounded and sent to the Alexandra Hospital, recovered, and again sent to the front, and in the Suvla Bay landing he was reported missing, and in all probability killed. A later report coming through confirmed the news that he was killed. The Branch forwarded a letter of sympathy to his parents, who reside in Dunedin.
