  • W553975 M. J. ANDZUE served with the 1st Battalion Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment (the originals 1963-65) based at Terendak, Malaysia. (active service in the Borneo Confrontation) He also served with the same battalion now based in Singapore as a Sergeant in 1973.
  • To our loving grandfather Michael John Andzue. I got to look at your achievements in the war at the museum today and also found find out which war you were in. Fighting for your country is one of the bravest things a man can do, and not every man can do it. And because of that it is an hounour to be an Andzue. Every time I see medals it always reminds me of you, it reminds of the rich heritage we have in our family bloodline because of the great achievements you have conquered, it reminds me of the Anzac day parades my younger siblings and I get to share with you. All the great memories i will never forget and forever will be in my heart. I'm not really good at writing letters and there's like a couple hundred more letters I can use. Talking like i can use them all which i probably can't, anyway. I love you Poppa from your loving Andzue's out in west Auckland. Love Zach.
