|WW100 commemorations launched|
First World War military service by students and former students of Canterbury Agricultural College (Lincoln's predecessor) is being remembered and honoured as part of the national and international WW100 commemoration activities marking the centenary of the start of the war in 1914.
On the Te Waihora (Lincoln) campus a ceremony was held on 4 August, the date of the declaration of hostilities in 1914. Organised by the Alumni and Development Office, the ceremony was centred on the unveiling of a large framed heritage photograph of the first group of students and old students who sailed for overseas service in 1914. As an initial WW100 project, the Alumni and Development Office is trying to trace and contact descendants of the eight soldiers in the photograph.
All except Manning (pictured above) sailed from Lyttelton for Egypt with the Canterbury Infantry Battalion on 16 October 1914. Manning had to withdraw because of ill health but eventually went overseas in 1916.
