  • Obituary
    MR A. C. DEE The death occurred suddenly on Thursday, at his residence in Gloucester street, of Mr Arthur Cecil Dee, first teller at the Union Bank of Australia for the last seven years. Mr Dee. who was 41 (sic) years old, was born in Ashburton and educated at the Ashburton Borough School. About 1911 he joined the staff of the Union Bank at Ashburton and worked there until 1915, when he left for Egypt as a member of the original Rifle Brigade. After serving in Egypt Mr Dee was transferred to France,
    where he fought in the battle of the Somme and was severely wounded. Lord Dawson, the King's physician, attended him; but his life was almost despaired of. He recovered, however and in 1917 was invalided home.

    After reporting to the Union Bank in Ashburton Mr Dee was sent to the staff of the bank at Tolaga Bay. For five years he worked there and was then transferred to Waimate, where he was a well-known member of the Waimate Bowling Club. On two occasions he represented South Canterbury at bowls. Mr Dee was also a member of the Savage Club Council in Waimate for several years. From Waimate Mr Dee was appointed to the position of head teller at Christchurch. Mr Dee led a retired life, but was very popular among the customers of the bank and his fellow-workers.

    Although not an active player, Mr Dee took a very keen interest in football and cricket. He is survived by a widow, four children—two sons and two daughters—and a step-brother, Mr C. R. Tovey, of Oxford. Public - Sarndra - 1 May 2021 - Paperspast portal via National Library of New Zealand; Press, 23 November 1935;
