NOTE a photo of George Klee (quality too poor to show here) says underneath: TROOPER GEO. KLEE (Seventh N.Z. Contingent)- Troopers Louis Klee, George Klee, and Victor Klee, although not sent as representatives of the Otago batch of men are three Waitati boys. They are the sons of Mr Victor Klee, of Waitati, and liver there till just a few years back. George Klee is in the Nelson section, and Louis and Victor are on the supplementary list of the Secenth Contingent. This trio of brothers as a group in the Witness illustrations will no doubt be kept as a memento by the Waitati folk with whom they were great favourites. We heartily wish them good luck and a safe returne to the land of their birth

Manawatu Standard, 4 August 1904 GUN ACCIDENT A shocking accident occurred to a young man named Louis Klee last Friday while out pig-hunting on the Akitio run (East Coast). According to the Dannevirke Advocate, Klee (who is employed as a rabbiter by Mr Armstrong) and another young man, were out getting some meat for the dogs. They were on a rough part of the run and were walking up a fairly steep hill. Klee was in the lead and just as they arrived at the top the man who was behind slipped and fell, the gun discharging at the same time. Klee got the contents in the calf of his right leg, making a fearful wound, a hole about six inches long being made where the charge came out. Assistance was obtained, and the wounded man was conveyed to Mr Armstrong's station. By the time the stretcher-bearers arrived at the station, the poor fellow was weak from the loss of blood and exposure, as it was a very cold evening, and being nearly ten hours from the time of the accident until arrival at the homestead. Mr and Mrs Armstrong and others did everything possible in the way of care and attention, but on examination, Dr Riddell found the small bone of the leg was shattered beyond repair, so Dr Godfrey, of Waipukurau, was telephoned for, and on his arrival on Saturday evening the leg was amputated just below the knee. He is now doing as well as possible under the circumstances. The deepest sympathy is felt for Klee by whomsoever he was known. He served a campaign in South Africa with the seventh Contingent, and returned without a wound, and then to lose a leg in such a way seems hard
