"Corporal James Flynn Bradley, who was killed in action at the Dardanelles on May 17, was educated at the Terrace School and Technical College, Wellington. Before enlisting he was a sergeant in the 6th. Hauraki Regiment. Like other patriotic New Zealanders, Corporal Bradley closed his farm to enlist with the expeditionary forces. His younger brother, Frank, was previously reported wounded, but recovered, and is now back at the front." (Auckland Weekly News, 1 July 1915, p. 21)
