Earthly Pilgrimage over the Funeral at Foxton of the late Rev. Father Patrick Dore, MC (whose portrait is inset in the picture). Roman Catholic Chaplain to the New Zealand Forces, who died at Auckland last week.
One of the most popular chaplains of the New Zealand Forces, the Rev Father Patrick Dore, MC, died at the Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Auckland last week, the funeral taking place in his old parish of Foxton. He was 32 years of age, and left with the Main Body as Roman Catholic Chaplain to the New Zealand Mounted Rifle Brigade, being attached to the Auckland Mounted Rifles. He was severely wounded at Gallipoli and while undergoing an operation last week as a direct outcome of his wounds he succumbed. The late Father Dore was in every way a "big" man, and one of his best friends and admirers was the late Major G ...... Presbyterian Chaplain to the Brigade.
