Mr. G. S. from New Zealand added:

I thought you may wish to know a little of Harry Fultonís service. 

He left Dunedin and joined the British Army returning to serve with the New Zealand Contingents in the Boer War and again with the New Zealand Division in WW1. He was Killed in 1917 by sniper fire while commanding a brigade in the Division. I have more details if you are interested.

Cheers
