    George Charles William DAVIES

    According to George's Army Service record he was born 1 July 1894 in Tauranga, but this does not match BDM records, which give his birth date as 1 July 1895. The reason for the discrepency was that the minimum age for enlistment in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force was 20 years, and on 8 Jan 1914 when George enlisted, he was only 19.



    TAURANGA, Monday.

    The death occurred yesterday of Mr. George Charles William Davies. Deceased, who was 27 years of age, was the eldest son of Mr. George Davies, of Tauranga. He served in the Gallipoli campaign and later in France. He was both wounded and gassed, and after his return to New Zealand bad health developed. He recently went to Oropi on a motoring trip and when returning was seized with hemorrhage of the lungs and expired in a few minutes. He is survived by a widow and two young children.
