Ivanhoe was born in Victoria, Australia circa 1897. His father, Charles Woodhouse Lee and mother, Leah Lottie Lee (nee Fisher), migrated back to Christchurch, NZ where the young family settled in Ashburton. His father worked for Dalgety's and Ivanhoe (as he is known in the family), enlisted in the Army. He was apparently 18yrs at the time, although his enlistment papers show he was 20yrs. Leaving in June 1915, he was fatally wounded on the assault of Chunuk Bair and died 11 August 1915. His remains were not sent home. He was the eldest in a large family. All his brothers joined either the army or Airforce and fought in WW2. All survived the war. ... Read More
