He saw much fighting in Egypt, the Canal zone and later in Palestine. He was wounded last year, but on recovery rejoined his unit. He was dangerously wounded in the head a month ago and the wound proved fatal.

LOCHHEAD Another young man well-known in this district who has laid down his life for King; and country is Corporal Thomas Lochhead, news of whose death was received from the military authorities on Monday last. The late Corporal Lochead was born in the Canterbury district and accompanied his parents to Te Puna over twenty years ago. After finishing his schooling he assisted his father in farming operations in the Te Puna and Katikati districts and always exhibited a very keen and intelligent interest in all matters affecting his calling. He was a young man of much promise, and his sterling character won for him the esteem of a wide circle of friends. By his death the Te Puna district loses one of its best and moat promising young farmers. He was actively associated with the Tauranga Agricultural and Pastoral Association. Although he led a busy life on the farm he also found time to engage in active recreation. To footballers he was known as a doughty member of the Te Puna team, which took part some years ago in competitions held under the auspices of the Tauranga Rugby Union. He was also a prominent figure at spoils gatherings, having played the pipes on numerous occasions at the local athletic sports and Scottish functions. He and other brothers volunteered for service. One brother, William, made the supreme sacrifice in Palestine some time ago while another, Norman, is still serving with the forces in the Holy Land. The sincerest sympathy will be extended to Mr and Mrs Lochhead and family in the loss of a dutiful son and affectionate brother. The late Corporal -Lochhead's response to his country's call was characteristic of the family, and it must be great consolation to all who mourn his loss to feel that— "He died the noblest death a man may die, Fighting for God, and Right and Liberty."
