  • Part 2 ...

    "I became greatly attached to Brodie, and was very disappointed when we parted company on merging with the battalion, he going to the Wellington West Coast Company as Sergeant-Major.

    He did not live to see much fighting, as he was one of our few casualties on the Apex. He was killed by a shell that ricocheted into his dug-out in a deep trench. His body lay for the day in a blanket in the little cemetery on the hillside, and after dark we buried him.

    A brave soldier and a gentleman was Brodie."

    Rest in peace, Gordon Brodie

    Report 
  • Part 1 ... From CH Weston's "Three Years with the New Zealanders ...

    " My Co. S.-M. Brodie, was an old Rifle Brigade Colour-Sergeant of ten years' service, and represented the best type of the N.C.O.'s of the old Regular Army.

    After resigning from the service, he had come out to New Zealand, and was green keeper to the Napier Golf Club when war broke out.

    He was a bachelor, and, I fancy, older than his "military age" of thirty-nine admitted; tactful to a degree, efficient, and, although as popular with his own company as with the other companies of the Reinforcement, yet a good disciplinarian."
