The Spike or Victoria University College Review October 1915



DUNDON, William Thomas.—Attended lectures during the years 1910, 1911, and was for several seasons a member of the Cricket Club. Dundon enlisted as a private in the Main Body.

GOULDING, John Hannington.—Attended lectures 1901 to 1907. Graduated B.A. 1906, M. A. 1907. He enlisted shortly after the Main Body left, and was appointed a Captain in the 3rd Reinforcements. Shortly after landing he was engaged in some severe trench fighting, and was killed by a bomb.

MILLS, John Edmund (Lance-Corporal).—Attended lectures 1909-1913. Mills graduated B.A. in 1913, and subsequently moved to Levin, whence he joined the Main Body of the N.Z. Expeditionary Force. Mills was killed during a fierce assault with the bayonet on a Turkish trench.

JACKSON, George Covell.—Attended lectures 1909 to 1913. He graduated B.A. in 1912, and subsequently entered the legal profession at Hamilton. On the outbreak of war, Jackson joined the Auckland Mounted Rifles, and took part in the fighting on the Gallipoli Peninsula, where he received the wounds which caused his death. G. C. Jackson was one of the best students at Victoria College—a man who took part in every side of University life, and who did not hesitate to sacrifice himself to further the interests of his Alma Mater. Those of us who knew him well appreciated to the full his sterling character, and feel a deep personal loss at his death.
