Son of George and Emily Frances Hogben, of 205 Clyde Street, Island Bay, Wellington. Fathe rwas Headmaster at TBHS from 1889 to 1899.
Lance-Corporal H.M. Hogben, who was
killed in action on March 27, was the son of Mr G. Hogben, C.M.G.,
and lately Inspector- General of the Education Department. This is the second
son to make the supreme sacrifice, and another son is still in France.
Lance-Corporal Hogben was engaged to Miss Riti Strack, B.Sc.,
of the District High School, whose brother was killed at
Passchendacle last October. Mrs Hogben (mother of the deceased soldier) had been enjoying a
holiday with Mr and Mrs Strack for a fortnight when the sad news came through.
