  • My grandfather George McLaren (12/2419) was a Palmerston Otago lad, but fighting with the 3rd (Auckland) Company, 1st Auckland Battalion in WW1.

    He mentions in his WW1 diaries seeing Duncan (and his brother Thomas) in the Gallipoli trenches.

    I have attached the diary entry so Duncan's family can connect further with their families WW1 contribution.

    Lest we forget.
