    • “For special devotion to duty at Flers on the 15th and 16th September 1916. Captain Bogle, New Zealand Medical Corps (Regimental Medical Officer attached 1st Battalion, 3rd New Zealand Rifle Brigade), established an aid station near Flers on 15th September and organised dressing and evacuation of wounded of his own and other units, a very large number passing through his station.

      He worked ceaselessly in the open under continual shellfire for 36 hours without rest or meals until he was killed by a shell five minutes before the Battalion moved out on relief on 16th September. His untiring efforts undoubtedly saved many lives and throughout he displayed an extraordinary devotion to duty. The work done by this officer since the arrival of his Unit in France last April has been exceptionally good. He has always shown great interest in his work and the low sick rate of his Unit is material proof of his excellent work.” Public - Diana - Other Relative - 21 April 2015 - London Gazette

    • "Capt. Gilbert Vere Bogle, M.B., N.Z.M.C., who was killed while attending the wounded on September 17th, practised at Hawkes Bay (N.Z.), and was aged 32. He was recently married to Miss Margaret Fell." (Chronicles of the N.Z.E.F. October 16 1916 p. 81)

      Son of James Kennedy Bogle and Annie Stafford Bogle, brother of 2/Lt George Stafford Bogle. AWMM
    • Gilbert Bogle sailed from Wellington on 9 October 1915 with the 1st Battalion as a Surgeon Captain in the Earl of Liverpool’s own New Zealand Rifle Brigade Medical Corps. He was 31.

      Just three months earlier he had married Margaret Cecily Richmond Fell from Eastbourne, who was pregnant with their child when he left for the front. She travelled to London with her mother to be closer to her new husband while waiting out the war. Margaret's father, Capt. Walter Fell, was also a doctor, serving at a military hospital in England.

      The Battalion arrived in Egypt on 14 November and Gilbert saw service at Mersa Matruh during the Senussi rising, before the N.Z. contingent moved on to France in April 1916.

      A list of 'The Fallen' in the 1920 edition of the Victoria College Review, published in 1920, noted: 'Captain Gilbert Vere Bogle came to Victoria College from Napier Boys' High School in 1901, graduating B.A. in 1908. During his first years [after university] he was a cadet in the Government, later obtaining a mastership at his old school, and in 1905 joined the staff of Wellington College.

      Before the founding of the Football Club he was a member of the original first hockey eleven. He was an excellent cricketer, and as a member of the Tennis and Athletic Clubs he was a successful representative in several Easter tournaments. In addition he was a capable boxer, a good oar, and an excellent swimmer. He was an all-round athlete, but football was his best game. He was on the Football Committee in 1905-6, and captain of the first fifteen from 1906 to 1908. He represented Wellington Province on several occasions, and was selected for the first New Zealand University fifteen to tour Australia, but was unable to travel with the team.

      He was an active member of the Debating Society, and took part in College theatricals and in all the social activities of his time. In 1906 he was a member of the Executive of the Students' Association. He was one of the faithful to whom the College owes its gymnasium. In 1908 he was nominated as candidate for the Rhodes Scholarship, and in the same year left for Edinburgh to study medicine. Here he further distinguished himself in the athletic world [gaining a ruby "blue"], and in 1913 completed his medical degree.

      On the outbreak of war he enlisted from Waipukurau, where he was in partnership [with the hospital superintendent Dr Godfray]...

      In sport, at work, and in ordinary life he was absolutely solid and dependable—a tower of strength in time of need.' Public - Diana - Other Relative - 21 April 2015 - Family papers
