  • 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-

    Report 
  • 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
