CAPTAIN CRAIG OF AUCKLAND

A tribute to the bravery at Gallipoli of Surgeon Captain CRAIG of Auckland was paid by a returned Anzac officer a few days ago in Christchurch. “As the wounded were brought in the congestion became so great that Capt Craig was directed to open an auxiliary clearing station at the foot of Artillery Lane and here attended the wounded. It was under fire and the bullets were flying and shrapnel was whizzing around. One of his assistants had been shot beside him and yet Dr Craig worked without cessation from mid-day until early next morning. Later this Auckland officer was under Colonel Plugge and was wounded. His conduct, his fearlessness and disregard of danger in the execution of his duty were splendid…….one of the bravest men I ever knew.”
