  • I leave this poppy on behalf of Arthur's niece Loma Dutton nee Connell. He was a wonderful Uncle to his nieces and many a story I have heard about his jolly nature in front of the children. However I also know that he was effected by his service in World War 2, and he was a heavy drinker as a result. He was a devoted RSA member both in Auckland and in Napier where he retired. I have a few of his photos of his time at war, but of the families he met rather than military photos. Kia Kaha Uncle Arthur.
