    • One of the children (Lesley) is missing from the list for Peter Patrick Grace. His son Ken Grace who lives in Auckland would be a good source of information to ensure the accuracy of the war records included here. Peter, my mother's older brother, was best man at their wedding in 1945. My father, Tom McClunie was his childhood school friend in Pirongia.
