The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1914
Students with the Expeditionary Force
Students with the Expeditionary Force.
"We that were bred overseas wait and would speak with our kin."
The call for volunteers for service abroad met with an eager response from many of the men who are students (past and present) of Victoria College. Our hearts are with these men, wherever they go. Mere words seem superfluous at such a time, but we cannot let the occasion pass without placing on record the College's deep appreciation of the self-sacrifice of these students.
The following is a list (as complete as we could obtain to the present) of Victoria College men who have been accepted in the Force:—
Messrs. Clere, Stubbs, Rogers, Busby, Harden, G. Seddon, Atkinson, Collins, Beere, Jowett, Jones, Williamson, Cox, Larsen, Longhurst, Meldrum, Huston, A. Miller, Adlam, C. G. Johnston, Young, C. Freyburg, McCaw, Quigley, O'Shea, Cooper, Hosking, Berendsen, McNab, Lankshear, Walker, Kreeft, Leary, W. J. Robertson, J. O. Smith, Ellis, McCormick, K. Adams, Howard, J.
