Biographical information

    • Settled in the Rangiora district after the war AWMM
    • Oliver my grandfather was born on 16 June 1893 in Invercargill NZ. He was a plumber by trade before enlisting. His first posting in 1914 was brief, because he was one of 32 men who refused to allow themselves to be injected with anti-typhoid serum and as a result were discharged from duty and sent home, but he enlisted again in 1916.
