Henry Hantler enlisted in the New Zealand Medical Corps on 13 May 1915. He served mainly in France and Belgium and was also in Egypt and Greece. He returned to New Zealand in December 1918.
Hantler's military record gives his last New Zealand address as "Tudor Cottage, Lake Road, Takapuna". Although that name is quite distinctive, it's difficult to tell exactly where the house was since he doesn't appear in street directories for the time.
Before enlisting he was employed as a clerk by the Colonial Sugar Refining Company. The company had a refinery at Birkenhead in Auckland but his military record gives his last employer as that company in Lautoka, Fiji, where it had sugar growing estates.
