The family had emigrated from Scotland to Blackball on the German liner 'Prinz Regent Leopold' in March 1903. Patrick won medals in Greymouth, Kumara and Christchurch for his fine singing. He enjoyed vaudeville singing, described in a newspaper article as having the crowd 'in stitches'. At the age of 18 he gained an apprenticeship as a jockey. He was only half an inch over 5 feet, and 7 stone 2 ounces. Patrick moved from Runanga to Christchurch after obtaining his Trainers license when he was 22. At the time of his enlistment he was settled in Riccarton, and was head lad for R. O'Donnell in Yaldhurst. Public - Kerrie - Other Relative - 28 May 2015 - Family papers.
