  • Remembered by a descendant of a Kohekohe district farmer (Kevin Everitt, grandson of Lance Corporal Arthur Douglas 56258, of Kohekohe). Noted on Waiuku and Te Toro Roll of Honour boards, then researched via Online Cenotaph and Archives NZ.

  • Richard was my great great uncle. The brother of my Great Grandmother Maude Renall. It is with great sadness that I read of his demise as he was a young man from a large family who would have all been devastated by his death. Indeed, the connection to hm is strong and his memory is fresh on this day🌹 he died in Palestine as I recall. It must have been terrible there, so far from our lovely, peaceful place. I think that the family were here in Waiuku by then as they came from Masterton where his Father was Mayor..Solway was his home...

  • WE WILL REMEMBER THEM. IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE AND VERY EMOTIONAL TO DISCOVER HIS MILITARY HISTORY, AND THE YOUNG PERSON HE WAS, AND IS WELL REMEMBERED BY HIS FAMILY.
