Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • Henry Masterton Clark was one of three brothers who fought in World War I. His brother Edwin Bartlett (Bart) Clark enlisted with the AIF as quartermaster sergeant and was injured twice. Charles Stanley also enlisted and his service details are as yet unknown. There is some confusion between Bart and Henry, who has also been incorrectly referred to as Bart by some sources. Portions of a letter to his father, Edwin Senior, are included in "Letters from Gallipoli", giving a graphic account of conditions there. When convalescing in England Henry took photos which are now held by the Waiouru Army Museum. Henry never married, according to family history, and died on July 21 1953. He was a well-regarded uncle of the Clark family. Public - Alec - Other relative - 3 December 2015 - Military Personnel Files: "letters From Gallipoli"; family records and recollections.
    • Harry Clark was a key figure in the construction of the Bulford Kiwi above Sling Camp in Southern England. He documented his work in letters to editors of various newspapers and in a diary he kept. I wrote the book - 'The Bulford Kiwi. The Kiwi we left behind' where Harry's endeavours are documented. Thanks to Harry we know a lot more about the Kiwi than originally thought. In addition he took photos of the Bulford Kiwi that are part of the publication. The negatives of the Kiwi were kept in a small brown envelope for nearly 100 years until discovered. Public - Colleen - Researcher - 15 February 2023 - Brown C (2018) The Bulford Kiwi.

  • Henry (known as Harry) was brother of Edwin Bartlett (Bart) Clark who served as a quartermaster sergeant with the AIF, and brother of Charles Stanley Clark, who also served. Henry rose to Major, first serving at Gallipoli, when a letter home to his father Edwin Clark, recorded in "Letters from Gallipoli" gives a graphic account of conditions. Later he was hospitalised to the UK, where he took photos which have been collected in an album held at the Waiouru Museum.
