    • Son of Thomas and Nora Burke (nee McCarthy), of 37, Parade, Island Bay, Wellington

      Listed at CWGC as Denis AWMM
    • 'Death of Ex-Samoan Trooper'
      The death occurred at the Wellington Hospital on December 9th, of Trooper Denis P. Burke, after having been operated on for tonsillitis. Deceased, who was well known on the railways of Wellington district, was for a long time associated with the Thorndon Branch, always taking a keen interest in the affairs of the Society.
      When the war broke out he was one of the first to volunteer for active service, and he became a member of the Samoan Force. Returning later he re-entered the railway service, but again heeding the call of the Empire, he once more donned the khaki and was in training at Trentham at the time of his death. Deceased was of an exceptionally bright and cheerful disposition. He was well known in both cricket and football circles. The entire sympathy of the community goes out to his relatives in their sad loss.
