The sons of Michael Frederick and Margaret Josephine Dennehy, of North St, left for war — Edmund in October 1914, Frederick in February 1916 and Thomas in April 1917. Edmund was living in Wellington at the time of his enlistment and working for NZ Railways. He served with the Wellington Battalion; Privates Scobie and Bloomfield from Timaru served with him in his gun detachment. He was killed in action at Gallipoli on August 6, 1915, and buried on Chunuk Bair. Thomas was a clerk who enlisted in Christchurch, leaving New Zealand in April 1917, bound for Plymouth. He was wounded in action at Passchendaele on October 12, 1917, but was later reported killed in action. He is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial near Zonnebeke, Belgium. Frederick was a bank clerk who left in February, 1916, for Egypt. He survived the conflict to return and died in April 1947.
