He was educated at the Caversham Public School, and afterwards took up photography as his profession. He was 11 years with Messrs Muir and Moodie, photographers, Dunedin, and latterly with Mr C. Armstrong, of George street. He left, with the Fourth Reinforcements.

  • George McGonigal was my Great Uncle, thanks to this site, I now know a little about him and today, ANZAC Day 2016 I laid a Poppy in his memory.. Lest we forget!

  • George McGonigal was my great uncle - my maternal grandmother's brother. According to electoral rolls of the day he was employed as a photographer. He was killed when he was twenty nine and has lain for a hundred years at Chunuk Bair along with over eight hundred other young New Zealanders. How very sad.
