Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of the Rev. A. H. and Mrs. J. R. Stobo, of 143, Earn St., Invercargill, New Zealand. Born at Invercargill

    "Stobo initially enlisted with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force at Trentham on 12 June 1915 at the age of 21, and joined the Otago Infantry, 'D' Company, 7 Reinforcements. However, his time in the army did not last long because he was discharged at Tauherenikau, near Featherston, after 191 days' service, as being medically unfit." (Church, p.186)

    After arriving at Sling Camp in 1916 Stobo was promoted to Lance Corporal. When he arrived in France at camp in Etaples he reverted to the rank of Private at his own request. (Church, p.186)

    In November 1917 Stobo joined the 2 Battalion, Otago Infantry Regiment, 8 Company near Stelles. "The Battalion transferred to the Ypres area in November and Stobo was involved in the attempt to take Polderhoek Chateau in December." (Church, p.186)

    In April 1918 Stobo fell ill whilst at the reserve camp on the Somme. After receiving medical attention in France for six weeks his case was considered serious enough for transfer to England. He arrived at No.1 NZGH, Brockenhurst on 2 June 1918, suffering from pleurisy. He died two weeks later due to tuberculosis of the lung. (Church, p.186)
