We are currently seeking a sponsor for this website as it follows the progress of the excavations on the battlefield, with contributions from established historians and well known experts, as the team attempt to match the historical evidence and family history to the archaeology on the ground.
Rfm. David Muir
New Zealand Expeditionary Force 3rd NZ Rifle Brigade. 2nd Bn.
(d.12th Oct 1917)
David Muir was my grandmother's younger brother. I have the telegram sent by the Minister of Defence, and the letter from the Governor-General, to his parents on the 8th of May 1918. I have a photo of David Muir and his older brother, John, who went to the Boer War and died 2 years later of Tb. A tragedy for the parents who had settled in 1870 after migrating from Orkney.
