George Rehe Reid

George Rehe Reid, my grandfather was better known as Dummy. Dont ask me why no one had a problem with that. Apparently he spent some years in childhood unable to speak. He went to War with his brother Jim and both returned. My grandfather said he was absolutely buggered after 4 years of war in Europe and Africa I guess. So he recouped and went on to lead a life as a building contractor in Taupo.
