  • Harry Fulton was the son of Lieutenant-General John Fulton, R.A., and Ellen Fulton, of India.

    Educated at Otago Boys' High School.

    CO (Commanding Officer) of composite Infantry Battalion, Samoan Expeditionary Force, 5 August 1914.

    Colonel and Commander of NZRB (New Zealand Rifle Brigade), Trentham, April 1915.

    Brevet Colonel, temporary Brigadier General, and Commander of NZ Forces in Senussi Campaign, Western Desert, Egypt, December 1915.

    Commander 3 NZ Infantry Brigade, France & Flanders, 1916-18.

    "An unlucky shell the same night destroyed the headquarters of the 3rd (Rifle) Brigade in Colincamps, and killed Brigadier-General Fulton, the Brigade Commander, and his Brigade Major, besides wounding several other officers." (Byrne 1922)

    The Chronicles of the N.Z.E.F., April 10 1918, page 100 reads: "The news of the death of Brigadier-General Fulton, C.M.G., D.S.O., 2 K.O. Gurkhas, was received with deep sorrow throughout the whole of the N.Z.E.F., and particularly by the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, whose moving spirit as well as a commander he had been ever since its original formation in New Zealand in the Autumn of 1915. On Good Friday, while he was in an estaminet, it received a direct hit from a 5.9 shell. A few were killed and others wounded, and the General himself lost consciousness from the shock and died a few hours later.

    General Fulton had had long service in the Imperial and Indian Armies, and, with all the pride of a keen soldier in his troops, had trained the Rifle Brigade rigorously and systematically, and instilled in them a discipline and an esprit de corps which have splendidly carried his now war-seasoned Brigade through many a tough fight. He is the third brigadier we have had the misfortune to lose within the twelve months; but, indomitable of spirit, fearless in action, and with a warm hearted affection and care for their men, they have shared our trials and our victories, and, dying soldiers' deaths, have passed from the field of battle only in body and will remain with us in spirit and example until peace falls again upon this sad, war worn old earth."

    At page 133 it is stated: "The building in which Brigadier-General Fulton was at the time he was struck was a ruined house which had temporarily been rebuilt. He was at work in the cellar."

    Lieutenant-Colonel Fulton was Officer Commanding troops embarking for Samoa on HMNZT 1. This is noted on Page 483 of Some Records of the NZEF. He must have been in command for the voyage only. He is not among the officers of the Samoan Advance party, nor in the Nominal Rolls for this embarkation. AWMM
