Great War Stories 2 - Lottie Le Gallais

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

This episode of the series about New Zealanders in World War I looks at Lottie Le Gallais. The Auckland nurse worked on the hospital 'mercy' ship Maheno, which transported wounded soldiers from Anzac Cove at Gallipoli. She arrived to find her brother Leddie had been killed. Te Papa exhibition Gallipoli: The Scale of our War featured a large-scale model of Le Gallais learning of Leddie's death, crafted by Weta Workshop. Weta boss Richard Taylor is interviewed here. The series was narrated by Hilary Barry, and screened during 3 News.

She had a great love of her brother Leddie, and travelled across the world to find him, only to discover through the returning of her letters that Leddie had been killed.
– Weta Workshop's Richard Taylor
