King Irving is named after one of the founder’s grandfathers. Henry King Irving (known to his friends as Harry) who trained as an engineer and chemist in Australia before enlisting as a volunteer in World War 1 on 14 November, 1914.
King Irving was assigned the 5th Light Horse Regiment based in Queensland. The regiment left Sydney on 21 December 1914. He was an ANZAC, fighting at Gallipolli, and later on the Somme (including Villers-Bretonneux and Ypres). He returned to Australia on 6 November, 1918.
After the war he built a successful career in business as the Head of the sugar industry in Fiji for CSR. For services to the sugar industry he was appointed an OBE in 1949. He also served as a member of the Executive Council of Fiji. Despite being gassed during the war, he lived into his eighties.
During 2015, Kate Mulligan attended the dawn service at Gallipoli to pay homage to Harry (and all those who served) as part of the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing.
“Our namesake, Henry King Irving, was an astute and highly ethical businessman, and a gentleman. His principles of excellence in conduct are at the heart of our values.”
Kate Mulligan, Managing Director – KIFM
