The story of the Newlove brothers. Charles, Edwin and Leslie came from Tākaka in Golden Bay, from a large family of 8 boys. After each enlisting in 1916 the boys joined their battalions in France by July of 1917. Edwin and Leslie were to serve in the 2nd Battalion, The Canterbury Regiment, and Charles the 3rd, The Auckland Regiment. Devastatingly, the three brothers were all killed within eight days of the Passchendaele Offensive. Edwin and Leslie were killed during the second attack at Bellevue Spur, and Charles prior to this at the attack on Gravenstafel Spur. The only one of these brothers whose body was pulled from the mud and identified was Edwin. If his brothers bodies were ever recovered, it would not be possible to identify them. Potentially the bodies of Charles and Leslie are buried among the 322 unidentified soldiers at Tyne Cot Cemetry in Passchendaele. The story of these three brothers; the pure horror of their deaths in such a short space of time, and the fact that two of them were never recovered from the mud, represents all that Passchendaele was. This battle came to symbolise the worst terrors of war, something which as New Zealanders we must remember solemnly upon its 100 year anniversary.
