  • Obituary
    Mr. and Mrs. W. Hay, 220 Clifford street, Whataupoko, have received the sad advice that their son, Private Frank V. Hay was killed in action on the 7th inst. Private Hay was well known in Gisborne, and was a popular young man. He was a member of the local territorials. He serve his time as a wheelwright with Messrs Davys, Third, and Mitchell. He had been so anxious to do what he believed to be his duty that he had volunteered more than once before reaching the requisite age. He enlisted when he had reached the age of 20 years, and was 21 years of age when he was killed. His letters from the front had been of a cheery nature. A portion of the time he had been engaged as a despatch rider. He left Gisborne with the 11th reinforcements, but was subsequently drafted into the 12th. His death will be deeply regretted by a large number of friends. Public - Lorraine Mona - Researcher - 20 May 2023 - POVERTY BAY HERALD, VOLUME XLIV, ISSUE 14329, 20 JUNE 1917, PAGE 3
