    • Oct 1916 - Rifleman Cleave, recently reported wounded, was in charge of the dress department at Messrs Adair Bros, when he enlisted. Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 1 December 2015 - Poverty Bay Herald, Volume XLIII, Issue 14117, 7 October 1916, Page 8
    • Dec 1916 - Advice has been, received that Private Arthur Cleave, of Gisborne, formerly in the employ of Messrs Adair Bros., was severely injured in the Somme battle. He states in a letter to a friend that in the advance one leg was shattered and the other hurt. There was no one near to assist him, and he crawled a long distance, and got into a shell hole to rest. He tried to get on again, and as he arose out of the shell hole a bullet struck him in the back. This injury affected his lungs. After much pain and trouble, he ultimately got back to the lines, and was sent to a hospital in England.
