    • Sept 1915 - Writing from the Imtarfa military hospital on July 23, Private B. Delaney, of the Maori Contingent, said he and Pani Pera were both hit in the thigh, but they were getting on fine and would soon be returning to the front. He heard that a Turkish shell landed in a trench that our boys were in and blew half of them up. At the Dardanelles it was great slaughter. The bullets were not so bad but it was the shrapnel that caused trouble. They were having a good time in the hospital. Pani and he went under an operation together Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 23 September 2015 - Poverty Bay Herald, Volume XLII, Issue 13786, 11 September 1915, Page 2
