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.
