Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of Ferdinand Stanley and Florence Margaret Batchelor (née Butterworth), of Dunedin.

    Husband of Cecil Edith Batchelor (née Elworthy), of Timaru.

    "Though in this area [Monte Trocchio, Italy] the regiment was relieved of some of the strain of the forward line, it was far from free from shellfire of heavy calibre guns. On the 25th, A Squadron had one man killed, Lance-Corporal Dunn, and on the 28th C Squadron suffered six more casualties, of whom Second-Lieutenant Batchelor died later that night." (Loughnan 1963) AWMM
