DAGG.
Weekly News 4th January 1917.
The following letter has been received by Mrs R E Dagg of Remuera, from Lt Col C H Brown, Officer Commanding the 2nd, Auckland, Battalion, in connection with the death of her son. "Please permit me to extend to you my most sincere and heartfelt sympathy on the death of your son Lieutenant Dagg. He was killed in action on the 15th of September 1916 while leading his men in the attack on the German trenches. I first came to know your son as a non-commissioned officer when I joined the Battalion three months ago. He was later promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and proved himself a most painstaking and efficient officer. He was brave beyond words and held the highest esteem and confidence of his men. It is difficult to write these few lines as I realise how very severe the blow must be to you. I can only say that he gave his life while gallantly doing his duty to his King and country - a brave officer and a true soldier whom we sadly miss. Your son's body was buried near the village of Fleur on the Somme; the exact location will be made known to you by the authorities. In consequence, please accept the most sincere sympathy of every officer and man in the Battalion on your sad bereavement."

DINNEEN.
Weekly News, 18th January 1917.
Captain J Dinneen, Auckland - The circumstances in which he met his death on the battlefield are related in a number of letters received last week by his mother, Mrs M D Dinneen of Manukau Road, Remuera, from fellow officers and others who were near him at the last. Captain Dinneen had a brilliant educational career in Auckland as a scholarship holder at the Grammar School and the University College and finally he gained a nomination for one of the NZ Rhodes scholarships. Then he became a member of the staff of the Grammar School, where he was also a captain of the school cadets up to the time when he left NZ. Lieut Col Plugge, commander of the First, Auckland, Infantry Battalion of the NZEF, writes: "Captain Dinneen was wounded on 27 September. He was gallantly leading his company to the attack on Gird Trench and, although he was twice wounded in the arm by machine gun fire, he went on, but a shell burst close to him, fracturing his thigh and a fragment striking him in the chest. We were not able to get him in attempting it, but one of his men got out to the shell hole with food and drink and covered him up. I saw him when they got him in and immediately arranged for a change of stretcher bearers. He was quite cheerful and only wanted something to drink. My doctor told me afterwards that he had hopes that his fine constitution would pull him through but it turned out that he had been hit by a phosphorus shell." In expressing his sympathy with the family in their bereavement, Col Plugge adds: "He was a splendid company officer, beloved by his men and absolutely devoid of all fear. I miss him not only as an officer but as an old personal friend and, though I was responsible for his joining the NZEF, I do not regret it and I don't think that he would." Private F Watson of the 16th, Waikato, Company says: "On September 27 we made an attack. It took place in four waves. Captain Dinneen should have gone over with the third wave but, being such a keen and brave man, he went with the first wave. We topped the parapet at 2.15 pm, Captain Dinneen in the lead, a pistol in either hand. I was near hi m right up to the time he fell. About half way between our trenches and the Hun barbed wire, a shell burst alongside him. The last I saw of him he was sitting in a shell hole and he did not appear to be in any agony. I was wounded myself the same night but one of our boys told me they got Captain Dinneen to a dressing station where he died on 1 October. He was absolutely the bravest and coolest man I have met. He was strict and conscientious but we all loved him as a gallant office and man. I have never come across an officer who did so much for his men. He was with us heart and soul and we with him. It was a common saying among us on the way to the Somme that if 'Jimmy Dinneen' came through he would get the DSO or a decoration of some sort. He was too good and brave a man to last - it is always the best that go young."

DORE.
Weekly News, 11th January 1917.
One of the most interesting reunions of Anzac men was that which was held at the Albert Hotel on Tuesday, when returned members of the Auckland Mounted Rifles, to the number of about 60, assembled to do honour to Chaplain-Captain Dore, who is so well known to all Auckland troops and particularly to the members of the AMR, as 'Father Dore'. Chaplain-Captain Dore was one of the chaplains of the NZ Mounted Brigade, main body, and was attached to the AMR. He went to Gallipoli with the brigade in May 1915, about a fortnight after the landing and remained there until the middle of August. Captain Dore at all times showed a keen devotion to duty and was awarded the Military Cross for the great gallantry that he displayed. Whilst rescuing wounded soldiers, he himself was badly wounded at Chunuk Bair. Major Ralph W Wyman, DSO, presided over the reunion of the survivors who shared the hardships of those memorable weeks on Gallipoli, in which the AMR took such an honourable part. In proposing the toast of 'Father Dore' he described their guest as 'one of the finest men who had left NZ for the front' 'Father Dore', he said, was not only a chaplain and priest; he was a padre to all - the friend, guide and counselor of men, not only of the Catholic Communion, but of all denominations. He recounted many instances in which their chaplain, at the greatest personal danger, had assisted wounded soldiers. On behalf of the returned members of the main body of the AMR, he presented Captain Dore with a fine case of pipes, in a silver box, bearing a suitable inscription. Major Wyman's remarks received the hearty endorsement of all present and their sentiments found further active expression in the rousing ovation accorded to Captain Dore when the latter made his reply. He thanked them all for their present, and said that he was proud to wear the bade of one of the AMR squadrons, which, he said, had been carried to the forefront of the battle, right to the shell torn crest of Chunuk Bair. He made a touching reference to the men of the regiment who had fallen at Anzac and who had been buried by him. The other toasts included 'The Imperials and Allied Forces' proposed by Mr A G Lunn and responded to by Captain J A Wallington, MC, and 'The AMR' proposed by Captain Beck and replied to by Mr C G Nicol, lately sergeant in the 3rd AMR. Appreciative reference was made by various speakers to the honour of DSO, which had been conferred upon Lt Col C E R Mackesy and that of MC, which had been bestowed upon Captain Fred Wood, both of whom had so prominently been associated with the AM.
