Walking with an Anzac — A Dardanelles Souvenir Badge, WW100NZ

Taranaki born and raised, Bollinger's father was German. This made him a target for anti-German groups in New Zealand. Bollinger worked hard and climbed up the ranks, but those who accused him of being pro-German were not happy. Bollinger, determined to prove his Anzac loyalty, offered to serve overseas again. He was wounded in action in June 1917 and died two days later.
