  • A great friend in the 1960's ,and often remembered with sadness ,not just on ANZAC day either!
    He would have been 74 this year-
    His favourite saying was "To live fast,love hard, die young ,and leave a good looking corpse"
    He achieved the first three....................

  • It is going on 55 years now but when I am reminded of our high school days, I often think of the last time I saw Ian. Haggard,in a greatcoat that seemed a size too large, a victim of too many battles, he did not speak, and as I now know, his demons were in full control. Had things panned out different,I am sure we would have enjoyed a lifetime friendship-

    #42097 Ian Ross GLENDENNING [V5 2 Plt Comd N69/N71] 9 May 1978 aged 30 (s) Ashes buried at Woodlawn Memorial Garden, 477 Linwood Ave, Bromley, Christchurch 8062. [-43.54137, 172.6898] LEST WE FORGET
  • The NZ Military never has and never will forget 42097 Lieutenant Ian Ross GLENDENNING. Ian was a great leader and commander of 2 Platoon, Victor 5 Company, 1 RNZIR with pride & distinction. Lest we Forget.
  • Ian was a friend of mine during and after high school. I am saddened that nobody has left a comment Ian and I shared some good times and I have good memories I will always speak his name with pride- even if the NZ Military preferred to forget him-I never will. Rest easy mate
