Son of David McBeth Calder and Jessie Alexander Calder (nee Moir), of 45, Easther Crescent, Kew, Dunedin. Born at Naseby, Otago.
"The remains of Private Kenneth Moir Calder, who died on Sunday last after having contracted pneumonia at the Dominion Training Camp at Trentham, were interred with military honors at Anderson Bay Cemetery this afternoon. The body, which was brought down from Wellington by the Monowai at midday, was taken to the Garrison Hall. The cortege left there punctually at 2.30, the coffin, which was enfolded in a Union Jack, being carried on a gun carriage. The firing party, which was furnished by the Coast Defence troops, were followed, by the 4th Regimental Band, who paraded at full strength under Lieutenant George. The funeral was attended by many local Territorials and several soldiers on leave from Trentham. The officers present included Major Holier, Lieutenant Keligher, Lieutenant Schluter, and Chaplain-major Fairmaid. The Post and Telegraph Corps, of which deceased was a member, were also represented. Private Calder was formerly on the staff of the Naseby office, As the cortege moved off, the band playing the Dead March in ‘Saul,’ the streets were thickly lined by a large number of citizens."
