The Treasury has an article on the Memorials of Thames. At present I am gathering information on the wider Coromandel Peninsula area to record the names of more of the men who died in or as a result of wounds/sickness from serving in World War One.
YOU can help, by contributing any family information on any of these men. The resulting collection will then be available at The Treasury in Thames.
Also if by any chance you are visiting Wellington archives and can assist with the request for digitisation of war files, please could you make contact.
Below is a postcard sent to Miss IVY GORDON of Thames during World War One. Perhaps this could have been sent by her brother Victor GORDON, the family lived in Augustus Street Thames.
