19 May 1915 - HEROES of the DARDANELLES
... Lieut. Graham Reid left with the rank of corporal, in the 3rd Auckland Infantry, but his keen interest in the work and his natural ability were such that his subsequent promotion is not at all surprising. He was the only son of Mrs J. Stuart Reid, of Dilworth Avenue, Remuera and was thirty-one years of age. After leaving King's College he entered the service of the Northern Steamship Company, and subsequently was chief clerk for Messrs Anderson and Colbeck, sharebrokers. Some two years ago he started business as a compny secretary and also acted as secretary to the Auckland Merchants' Association. As soon as the call for men was made he and several of his intimate friends were among the first to join the ranks of the Auckland quota. Lieut. Reid was a prominent menber of the King's College Old Boys' Association, in which he held all the offices at various times, including that of president, also of the Auckland Golf club, the Yacht Club and several other Athletic and social organisations. Deceased had a very wide circle of friends and his relatives will have their sincere sympahty. The late Lieutenant Reid was also secretary of the Citizens' Defence League. He evidently won his commission in the field, durng recent operations at the Dardanelles, for a letter received by his cousin (Mr W. Hamlin) this morning, written on April 6, just before leaving Cairo, stated that he still had only a corporal's stripes
