Frank McElligott was the second son of the late Gerald McElligott. He came to the College in 1908, and remained there until 1912. After leaving he went to the Castle, Blackrock, to study for the Indian Police. Soon after the War, 1914-18 broke out, he joined the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, with the famous 10th Battalion. He served in Gallipoli, Palastine, Egypt and finally in France where he was wounded.

After the war he was commissioned in the Indian Police, and attached to the Burma Division. In the war against the Burmese Insurgents he was awarded the King's Medal for gallantry. Since then he served with the Police until his death in 1941.
