  • I have been researching the 3rd Battery of the NZFA for many years. I have a sketch made by Graham in 1915 at Cape Helles Gallipoli. It shows the position of his dugout and that of others who manned his gun, He twice wrote to the family of 2/458 Leslie Gower explaining his death, I would appreciate any other documentation from Graham and will share what I have. RIP Graham
