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.
Pte. Hemi Hill
New Zealand Pioneer Battalion
(d.7th Jun 1917)
My Great Great Uncle (and namesake) Hemi HILL, was killed in action at Messines on 7th June 1917. He was a Kiwi soldier and his older brother Robert served in Ypres around a month later. I am writing a book about my family's military history and I will be going to visit Hemi at his place of rest at Kandahar Farm Cemetery in Wulvergehem just south-west of Messines in December of this year.
