  • A very nice man who served with my Father . Mr Horner gave me information on my late Father that was important to me. Mr Horner was well known and respected in our home town and he put me in touch with his sister in Rhodesia when I went to live there . I last saw him in the Whangarei R.S.A and I was able to tell him about his sister in Africa . R.I.P Mr Horner
