Private Leonard Hart (back row, second from right) and mates at Trentham Camp, 1915.
A Railways Department clerk from Southland, Hart enlisted in February 1915 and sailed for Gallipoli in time to arrive for the slaughter at Chunuk Bair in early August. Struck down by enteritis, he was evacuated to Egypt to convalesce before being sent to the Western Front in May 1916.
