Biographical information

Biographical information

  • Mr. T. Garbutt Knott (Trooper 9/154) had intended to go back to New Zealand, but he was obliged to take his discharge in England in order to be with his mother, whose health was considerably impaired through the death of two sons, one being killed at Ypres and the other on the Somme. Mr. Knott thinks of taking up farming in England in the near future, but he hopes it will be feasible to pay another visit to New Zealand. In a letter to me, Mr. Knott writes: "I would also like to mention with gratitude how splendidly the women of New Zealand looked after us when we were away on service. Also, I hope the people of New Zealand have been informed of the splendid work done by Matron Early and the staff of 'Aotea' Convalesoent Home in Egypt. Of the work of these ladies too much cannot be said, as they certainly gave us all their time to making us happy and contented." Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 1 December 2016 - EX-N.Z.E.F.
