CALL to ARMS - PETONE men who fell WWI

Journal by ngairedith

I have taken some extracts from the Hutt City Library site from the page
Lower Hutt Past and Present (1941)

I highly recommend a visit to their site for some wonderful info and photos of that district and the early settlers.

I am doing some short overviews from their database:

journal 1 - settlers of LOWER HUTT 1839 - 1941

journal 2 - the PILGRIM MOTHERS of the Hutt Valley

journal 3 - PETONE's first 100 years, - list of names

journal 4 - PETONE men who fell WWI - list of names

journal 5 - FREEMASONRY - Ulster Lodge No. 62

journal 6 - LOYAL PETONE LODGE - No, 6542

journal 7 - Ancient Order Of Foresters - COURT EPUNI, 7314

journal 8 - INDEPENANT ORDER OF RECHABITES

journal 9 - PETONE Branch - Hibernian Australasian Society 1910

journal 10 - PETONE PIONEER BRANCH - Oddfellows

journal 11 - HERETAUNGA LODGE & STAR of PETONE LODGE

journal 12 - PONEKE LODGE - Ancient Order of DRUIDS

journal 13 - PETONE Town Board - formed 1881

journal 14 - HUTT RIVER BOARD - formed 1879

... When the call came in 191418, the Borough was not slow in its reply, and, as ever, there were many who followed the flag to the ends of the earthand beyond.
Those who stayed behind were quick to offer material aid and, headed by the Mayor, Mr. J. W. McEWAN [i[(served 1907-1927), they quickly raised a sum of 8,000 (approx $952,000 in 2011). In addition, 500 was raised for Petone men when they returned, and the names of those who did not come back were perpetuated on a monument of New Zealand stone, set in the Recreation Ground.

The following Petone men made the supreme sacrifice:
