  • Notes 


    • It is likely that Leslie George was a farmer, as he applied for a pastoral licence in Inangahua in 1908. It was approved.

      In 1914 he enlisted in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and served in the 1st Battalion of the Canterbury Regiment. He was a Private with regimental number 6/1233. He gave his last NZ address as Manunui, which is a small settlement in the King Country region, about 4 km east of Taumarunui.

      Leslie did not survive the war. He died in France on 10 Aug 1917 and was buried at the Ploegsteert Wood Military Cemetery at Hainaut, Belgium.
