Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • According to Ian Boyden 'I had enlisted to go away with the 2nd Echelon, but was held back by the Dairy Board for quite a time to cart milk from the Rua Roa District to a factory at Te Rehunga as Britain wanted cheese in greater quantities and New Zealand did what Britain requested.'

    I was slightly wounded three times and treated by our Unit Medical Personel as I didn't want to leave my unit.

    I was selected to go to o.C.T.UC.C. in Britain, but came back to NZ on leave and didn't return to the Middle East as the war was nearly over in that area, I then returned to my occupation as a farmer.' AWMM
