HARVIE, Walter


Walter Harvie

Christchurch


John Thomas Gudsell
no. 42667 Canterbury Regiment NZEF
born 18 February 1891 Springfield
died 4 October 1917 France
aged 26
killed in action during the Third Battle of Ypres at Passchendaele
“Killed in action” say the cables,
That's all the tale they tell
Of the brave young lad who loved us,
And the lad we loved so well.
How the life was sped we know not,
What the last word, look or thought
Only that he did his duty
Died as bravely as he fought.
