NEW ZEALAND AND WORLD WAR ONE
NEW ZEALAND MEMBERS OF THE DUNSTERVILLE MISSION KNOWN AS DUNSTERFORCE
1918

Thanks to Barry O'Sullivan for these names.

Wikipedia - Established in December 1917, Dunsterforce was an Allied military force named after its commander, General Lionel Dunsterville. The force had fewer than 350 Australian, New Zealand, British and Canadian officers and NCOs, who were drawn from the Western and Mesopotamian fronts. The force was intended to organise local units in northern Iran (Persia) and southern Caucasus, to replace the Tsarist armies that had fought the Ottoman armies in Armenia. The Russians had also occupied northern Iran in co-operation with the British occupation of south Iran, to create a cordon to prevent German and Ottoman agents from reaching central Asia, Afghanistan and India ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunsterforce
