Thanks! I can confirm that Geo Connor is not him - wrong age and George Connor was listed alongside Charles Cannon for the NZ war medal. Charles Cannon if he was on the ship would have been listed as 40-41. If it's George, who was older than this, I believe he selected that age because the age limit for enrollment in this militia was 40, and he used his birth name Charles because 'good character' meant he wanted to obscure his convict past or perhaps any other misdemeanours. 'Charles Cannon' left the militia the day George Cannon's daughter was born in Dunedin.
