    • Rev. Stephen Parr. Chaplains' Dept.— He showed a splendid fearlessness and devotion in attending the wounded under heavy shell fire on the battlefield. Later he personally led stretcher parties to the front line and assisted to collect and evacuate the wounded. Owing to his energy and resource the battlefield was cleared of wounded by the evening. His of personal satety and cheerfulness under trying circumstances did much to maintain the spirits of the men. Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 13 March 2016 - Auckland Star 213 Oct 1917 Page 3
