Wharenui School Cadets 1909.


Taken in September 1909 just two and a half years after Wharenui School opened, these boys were mostly all Standard Fours. The orginal photo has been lost and in the case of many of the boys shown here it is the only known photo of them. Most of the boys in this photo would go on to serve in the First World War (their names are underlined).

Their correct full names are;

Back Row

Harold Eaton, Reginald Arthur William Calvert, Barclay Henry Dennis, Herbert Victor Tregoning, Thomas Harold Lane, Norman Henry Fraser, Philip Arthur Lummis, Francis Edward Eaton

2nd Row

William Thomas Overend, Ronald Garvin McCullough, Robert McIntyre, Rawhiti Eric Batten, Ralph Gordon Richardson, Thomas George Benjamin Candy, Hugh James Cassin, Ernest Frank Fine
