  • Notes 


    • James was born in Puhoi in 1892 and went to Upper Waiwera school. Along with brother Thomas, James served in Europe in World War I. He is mentioned in Thomas's obituary (16 October 1916) as being wounded. James did not survive the war either:

      James Travers Hurley, Cpl 22/812 2nd Battn Entrenching, Died 17/4/1918 Aged 25, son of Mary Hurley, Taiaotea, Browns Bay, Auckland and the late Henry.

      The inscription on the Messines Ridge NZ Memorial reads "Here are recorded the names of Officers and Men of New Zealand who fell in or near Messines and whose graves are known only to God". The plaque of Machine Gun Corps names includes Corporal J.T. Hurley.

      James is remembered, along with his brother Thomas, on the Upper Waiwera War Memorial.
