  • JOHN PILLOW, A MALTESE WHO SERVED IN THE NZ ARMY

    By Mark Caruana

    In a previous issue, I wrote on Louis Cremona from Rabat Gozo who served as a NZ Rifleman and cook during WW1 and who I believed to be the only-known Maltese ANZAC from NZ at the time of writing. Louis Cremona was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal for his services on the Western Front.

    As my research is on-going, I have now found another three Malta-born ANZACs from NZ and another born in NZ of a Maltese father and a Kiwi mother.
    With the help of Jan Donnelly from Nelson NZ, an avid researcher and genealogist, I was informed that Louis obtained a Papaffy passage subsidy to migrate to NZ in 1906, together with his friend, a Valletta-born Maltese, John Pillow. Both travelled together on the same ship and arrived in Wellington NZ on the 5th March 1906. Louis Cremona found work as a chef with the Cress Club, Masterton Hotel in the Wellington Region, while John Pillow found employment with the NZ Government as a civil servant.

    But, with a name like Pillow, was he Maltese? At the Malta National Archives, I located John Pillow’s application for a passport, dated 23rd Sept. 1905. In it he stated that he was born on the 21st November 1883 at Valletta and baptised at the parish of St Paul. His father was the late Enrico Albert Pillow married to Teresa Azzopardi. At the time he applied for a passport, John Pillow resided at 17 Sda San Nicola Sliema. So John Pillow was born and grew up in Malta. The mere fact that he was successfully awarded a Papaffy subsidy is evidence of his Maltese nationality as this assisted passage scheme was available to young literate Maltese.

    In NZ, John Pillow married a Catherine Marie Bradley, a NZ girl from Matamata, Waikato district, on the 15 April 1914. A few months later, on the 26th August 1914, he enlisted with the NZ Field Artillery, 3rd Brigade and was soon promoted to the rank of staff sergeant (three chevron armband) with the regimental number 15/74. As staff sergeant he was responsible for administration and human resources in the army.

    John and Catherine resided at Kelburn and Days Bay in Wellington and in Tauranga.
    John Pillow started duties on the 24th August 1914 and was discharged on the termination of his engagement on the 13 Dec 1918, i.e. he served for the duration of the war, one year in NZ and three years overseas. With the NZ Field Artillery, he did two years as a sergeant and two years as a staff sergeant He was discharged on termination of his engagement on the 13 Dec. 1918.

    John Pillow served in Egypt, Dardanelles, Anzac and France. He was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. He died 1968 at Perth WA aged 80 years.
