  • This is my precious Dad. A brave man who, with others, served his country. He and other NZ soldiers where hidden from the Germans initially under the floor boards of a house and then in a cave in the hills by the people of Crete. I have met some of the family of those to helped them before they were captured by the Germans. I also have a photo of the house where they were hidden.
