  • Makiwi was my grandfather Waimanuka's brother, both served as privates in the Maori Pioneer Battalion. His World War 1 record is fascinating reading. It seems he was a rebellious fellow and lucky to survive four years of military service and I'm not talking about enemy fire. Their father Meremana Konui was a leading chief of Ngati Maru which could explain Makiwi's carefree attitude to military authority. He did not have any children and is buried with his whanau in the family urupa at Thames
