Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of Charles and Mary Parsons Long, of 49 Esplanade Road, Mount Eden, Auckland.

    "Was reported 'wounded and missing' during the early days of the war at Gallipoli, but little hope being entertained for his safety after receipt of the first news. He joined the staff in May, 1911, at the time of the migration into the new buildings. Thus he never knew the old School, but from the first showed the keenest interest in its traditions, and a just appreciation of all that was best in them. A keen and capable N.C.O. in the Territorials, he was the first member of the staff to volunteer for service abroad, and went as a private in the earliest draft that left Wanganui for camp. There his merits were quickly recognised; he received his sergeant's stripes, and on arrival in Egypt was selected for special training with a view to a commission in the Imperial Forces, which he subsequently received in the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, then under orders for Gallipoli. He was last seen lying on the ground wounded in the head, and cheering on his men. He died as he had lived, not sparing himself, but thinking of others. His time here was short, but he has left behind him the memory of a whole-hearted allegiance to the traditions of the School, a record of devoted service and work ably done, and in addition a feeling of sorrow at the loss of an unselfish friend." (In Memoriam, 1914-1918 [Wanganui Collegiate School]) AWMM
