  • David used an alias Pareiha Tuati (Frazer Stewart) and also lied about his age during his enlistment. His mother was against his enlistment as he was only 19yrs of age at the time. He was the younger brother of Sergeant Matthew Rapana STEWART 12/451 who served with the 6th Hauraki Company in Gallipoli and then France. Davids father David Heta Reweti Stewart was part of the New Zealand Natives football (rugby) team that toured the UK in 1888 - 89. They were the first team to perform the 'HAKA' prior to the game, which was later adopted by the New Zealand national team as well as the Black jerseys (as the national team jerseys where Navy Blue) which lead to the name of the national team becoming the ALL BLACKS.
