Leave a tribute or memory of
Clifford Stanley Emeny
As my father served as a pilot in the same theatre of war in Burma, and had noted the incident which brought about capture and imprisonment, I read a brief summary of F/Lt Emeny's experience of being shot down, burned, evading capture but being robbed and betrayed by villagers and his subsequent imprisonment. I know from the book source that I have at hand that both F/Lt Emeny and his Navigator, Plt Off Yanota suffered terribly but never gave any information during interrogation. They were both remarkable tough, courageous and compassionate men. I just want the family to know, that even now, so many years later - their heroism, their endurance and their compassion is not unknown, and never forgotten. I He stands tall in the Generation of Greatness.

Uncle Cliff was my Mums brother and I was bought up with the family wherever they lived holidays etc.
He was a wonderful person with community at heart. Always hard working and since the war politically motivated.
He had health issues from being a prison of war. So Uncle Cliff and Aunty Joan went into a health product.
He became a qualified iridologist and helped many people including my daughter.
He died just before I left NZ. 2000.
Miss them not being in New Plymouth when I visit.
Forever with the Lord Uncle never forgotten Barbara your niece.
