  • Kia ora Whanau,
    This great man was my uncle and namesake. I never meet uncle but have many stories and passed down memorabilia of him. I acknowledge my Tainui heritage and ancestors in bringing me to this page. I appreciate the Auckland museums work in honouring our past forebears and those fallen in the service of peace, our country is small but large in this global climate, much likened to a mosquito in room of sleeping consciousness.

    Kia ora koutou Katoa.
