  • Date of Birth 1st November 1895 Older brother of my maternal Grandmother Helen Hope Ballantyne (nee Cunningham)
    Public - Helen - Other relative - 21 April 2017
  • Arthur was a younger brother of my grandfather Gordon Heriot Cunningham Lest we forget, we will remember them.
    Public - Margaret - Other Relative - 26 April 2015
  • Arthur was a loved dear friend of the late Eileen (Molly) Leigh of Turakina. Molly waited in hope for some 8 years for Arthur to return home. She did not want to believe he had not survived WW1. Molly later married and much loved the late Frederick Chell, but she never forgot Arthur and Fred understood and respected her for this. Arthur is greatly respected by our family for giving up his life for us all. Never forgotten. We have a photo that Molly kept of Arthur (we will post this shortly).
