  • A telegram was received by Mrs Godfrey, of 55 Bright- Street, yesterday, from the Minister of Defence (the Hon. J. Allen) stating that her oldest son, Private Gilbert Godfrey, had been wounded, and was suffering from shock. It was further stated that he had embarked for England. Private Godfrey, who was well known in Gisborne, enlisted at Auckland, and left with the 8th Reinforcements. In addition to the wire from the Minister of Defence, Sir Joseph Ward wired, to say that he was exceedingly sorry to hear that Private Godfrey had been wounded while fighting in defence of King and country, and sincerely hoped that he would make a speedy recovery.
