Newspaper stories

Sandy Mulligan volunteered with a few days of the outbreak of World War 1. His service record indicates his service began on August 10, 1914. In April 1915 he was amongst the New Zealand troops who landed at Gallipoli in the Dardenelles. He was there until evacuated in December 1915.

Before enlisting, Sandy would have read newspapers and so been aware of the escalating events in Europe that would lead to War. Here a sample of the sorts of stories he would have read.
