Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of Edward George and Louisa Sarah Cox, of 92 Glasgow Street, Wanganui.

    "Entered the local office of the Loan and Mercantile Company, and was shortly afterwards transferred to Waipukurau. When considerably under military age, he sought leave from his parents to volunteer for service abroad, immediately went to Trentham, and left with the Main Body in the Wellington Infantry Regiment for Egypt, where he saw a certain amount of fighting on the Canal before leaving for Gallipoli. There he landed safely on April 25th, but the fighting was described by him as desperate. Three weeks later he was made Lance-Corporal, but was mortally wounded on May 9th, dying on a hospital ship bound for Alexandria, May 14th, 1915." (In Memoriam, 1914-1918 [Wanganui Collegiate School])
