    • Corporal F. B. Langridge, who was killed at the Dardanelles on May 8, was the son of Mrs. Elizabeth Langridge, of Riverbank, Wanganui, and a brother of Mr. J. W. Langridge, of Christchurch. (Auckland Weekly News, 1 July 1915, p. 21) AWMM
    • Grey River Argus, 29 July 1915, Page 5:
      Sergeant-Major J. W. Langridge, writing to the parents of Sergeant Otto Hahn, who enlisted at Rangiora, and was killed in action, regarding the manner of his death, said: "On May 8 we were attacking a Turkish position and in the final charge poor Otto was hit so badly that he died instantly. His courage was splendid and I would like you to take comfort in the thought that he suffered absolutely no pain, and was not disfigured in any way. Otto was a true soldier, and there are many heavy hearts amongst his comrades for he had the admiration of all of us. My own brother was killed with him, and we buried them almost side by side in a spot which will never be disturbed. l am proud of my brother, I ask you to be proud of your son.
