White cross for William Harcourt Lochhead (1895-1918).


Te Puna farmer William Harcourt Lochhead was serving during World War I when he died of gunshot wounds to the head in Cairo, Egypt, on 11 May 1918. Just three months later, his older brother Thomas Leslie Lochead was killed in action at Bapaume in France. In 2014 Tauranga's 'Field of Remembrance' was created comprising 107 white crosses in memory of the men from the Tauranga area who died during World War I (1914-1918). Each cross carries a red poppy and the name of an individual who died. Text and photograph © Debbie McCauley (2014).
