Collection Dundon
Description 1 small photograph showing three men.

The envelope it comes from was found in September 2010 inside the book, War Graves of the British Empire. The envelope (see catalogue record 2002.092.0056) has written on it in Nancy Farnell's hand, "3 Dundon brothers (?) including Pt. W.T. Dundon killed at Gallipoli 1915".

Research shows that there were only two boys in the family of Jeremiah and Catherine Dundon, who were farmers at Ward, Blenheim. William Thomas (1891-1915) and Philip Dundon (1887-1948), locomotive foreman of Bignell Street, Wanganui. Philip Dundon, who married Esther Jane Nathan Wilson in 1913, has two (unproved) sons, Christian (Chris) Jeremiah Dundon (1914-1969), builder of Wanganui, and Philip Stanley William Dundon (1917-1979), builder of Wanganui. There is a third boy, Horace William Dundon (1921-1984), but he may be the son of Horace Joseph Dundon 1887-1938), a plasterer of Wellington). The only reason he might be a third son is that he marries Marjorie Winifred Morgan and Philip Stanley William Dundon marries Ethel Ada Morgan. So as at 2013 it is unknown who these men are (see notes for sources).
