Public Contributions:

"Private Joseph Watt, son of Mr J. Watt, of Maungatai, who has been killed at the Dardanelles, was only 17 years of age. The first that his parents knew of his being at the war was when they received notice of his death (says yesterday's Timaru "Herald"). He left home four years ago to join the Amokura, and when the war broke out he joined the first Melbourne Battalion." (Press, 23 June 1915) ... Read More
