looking for McGUORGUODALE - anywhere
Private John Cooper went to war on the 17th April 1915.
He was with the Otago Infantry Battalion 4th Reinforcements.
He left Wellington New Zealand for Gallipoli where he was killed in action on 27th September 1915
As is next of kin he had put: Mrs M. Cooper (mother) care of
M.A. McGuorguodale, Waikaka Valley, Otago, New Zealand
ALSO: Son of the late Jesse & Mary Ann Cooper of Waikuahuna Gorge
I cannot find one person of the name McGuorguodale anywhere in New Zealand - or for that matter, anywhere in the world - so the spelling must be wrong.
Do you know anyone in New Zealand with that name?
Do you know how it should have been spelt?
