    He then went on to earn his DSO for service in Sinai and Palestine before returning to NZ and then re-embarking with the 39th Mounted Rifles Brigade Reinforcements aboard SS Moeraki on 9 August 1918.

  • I have enjoyed researching Edward “Teddy” Hulbert. I did this research as I have a wonderful photograph of him with my grandmother, Jessie Pearston McKenzie Crooks at Lyall Bay beach in 1926. Given his service and no doubt harrowing experiences, it is lovely to see him relaxing at the beach and contemplating a donkey ride. Thank you for your excellent records.
