NEW ZEALAND AND WORLD WAR ONE
1914 - 1915
DEATH RATE FALLS - Bay of Plenty Times - 15 April 2005
The horrific rate at which New Zealand soldiers died in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915 may be less than previously thought, new research shows.
Officially, 2721 New Zealand soldiers are said to have died as a result of Gallipoli service, from 8556 who served on the peninsula, a rate of 31.8 per cent.
But new research by Hamilton author Richard Stowers suggests 19.8 per cent of New Zealanders lost their lives. He said 2779 New Zealanders died from the 13, 977 who served there, 58 and 5421 higher than first thought.
