  • Son of William James and Eliza Agnes Hendle, of 2, Pickering Terrace, Kaiwarra, New Zealand. Born at Wellington.

    From the spring of 1915, the hospitals and convalescent depots established on the islands of Malta and Gozo dealt with over 135,000 sick and wounded, chiefly from the campaigns in Gallipoli and Salonika, although increased submarine activity in the Mediterranean meant that fewer hospital ships were sent to the island from May 1917.
