    (First Territorial Force Attachment, 1st Battalion, NZ Regiment, Malaya) – With much sadness we advise the passing of David on November 4, 2020, aged 83 years, after a long battle with illness. Dearly loved husband of Leslea, loved dad of Jane, and Sandra, loved father-in-law of Paddy, loving grandad of his four grandchildren, and 'Pop' to his seven great-grandchildren. Special thanks to the staff at Addington Gardens who all took care of David with great kindness, compassion and respect. (The Press on Nov. 7, 2020) AWMM
