  • "A sad fatality due to an accident resulted in the death of Lieut. C.F. Carey, of the Canterbury Otago Regiments, on Tuesday, November 7th, 1916. Lieut. Carey was employed on the staff as bombing instructor, and was engaged in qualifying a company of men in bomb throwing. One lad who was with the officer unfortunately failed to release the grenade correctly, with the result that it lodged itself on the inside of the bay Lieut. Carey, with lightning intuition, foresaw the result, and realising the danger of the situation forced the man on to the ground to save him, and then attempted to throw the bomb on to the safe side of the bay. He was a trifle late; the grenade burst within two feet of him, and he sustained severe wounds on the head. His heroic action saved the life of the man, but in the attempt (regardless of his own safety) he sacrificed his own. The accident occurred at 11 a.m., and the gallant officer passed away at 9 p.m. that same night. His loss is hard to bear, and his place hard to fill. He was an officer who was a soldier, a man, and a friend. The whole camp from colonel to private mourned his loss, and as fitting tribute to the memory of so brave an officer, every available man attended the funeral on Friday, athe 10th, making a column of nearly one mile. The graveside service was conducted by Chaplain Capt. Joe R. Sullivan. Wreaths from Col. the Hon. G.J. Smith, the officers of the Canty-Otago Battalion, the officers of the Auckland-Wellington Battalion, the sergeants of the Canty-Otago Battalion, the NCOs and men of the Canty-Otago Battalion, the Canty-Otago Football Club, friends of Lieut. Carey, Mrs. M. Mylrea, and the Y.M.C.A. staff, and the N.Z.W.C.A., were placed on the coffin on the gun-carriage. A handsome sum has been subscribed by the officers and men of his unit, and will be devoted to the obtaining and erecting of a suitable headstone over Mr. Carey's grave. On Sunday, November 12th, a memorial service was held in the Y.M.C.A. The building was filled to the doors. Appropriate hymns and prayers were given, and "Abide with me", Lieut. Carey's favourite, was sung." [ Captain Chaplain Sullivan addressed the assembled mourners and the complete text of his sermon can be found in: Chronicles of the N.Z.E.F. November 29 1916 p. 148] AWMM
