  • Obituary
    Lieutenant T. S. Grant, killed in action on the western front, was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Grant, of Maungaturoto, and formerly of Ormondville. Prior to enlisting in the eighth reinforcements, he was managing a mill in the Dannevirke district. He was employed for a while at the base in Egypt as sergeant, but was subsequently transferred to the artillery, and proceeded to France. He received his commission in April last, and went through the fighting in France from the first days of the Somme battle. An elder brother recently returned from the front wounded. (Auckland Weekly News, 24 January 1918, p. 19) AWMM
