Mystery surrounds the whereabouts of Gunner William HOWIE, aged 24, whose parents reside in Georgetown. He returned to NZ with a draft of wounded and invalided soldiers, arriving in Auckland on 16 March, and reached Wellington in due course. He was seen in that city late at night before the steamer left for Lyttelton but on its arrival at that port he was not on hand and has not been heard of since.
