  • We remember our Great Uncle who fought during the WWII. we were fortunate that he returned to us whereas many Maori remain on foreign soils. I will always remember Uncle Barney visiting us with his wife Lizzy, and mokopuna at the time. My mother was Barneys neice and when the kahotea whanau visited us my father took him to the RSA unbeknown to the Reefton locals that this man was a top snooker player. My father asks this visitor (uncle Barney) if he would play as a pair with him against some of the locals- well what a rude awakening- Uncle Barney cleaned them up and dad attempted to keep his identity quiet as the locals were shouting them both........LOL when they found out. uncle Barney was a very humble man and much respected by all whanau- a wonderful man, matua, koro.
