  • Yesterday on ANZAC Day (25-4-2019 ) I payed my respects to William by laying a cross with poppy in remembrance. I only discovered, late last year (2018), William's grave. I am an ex Army veteran and since my retirement have been visiting the War Cemeteries and Battle Fields of Europe from WW1 and WW2 of which there are very many.

E hangaia tonutia ana te Maumaharatanga Tuihono; tāpirihia ai ngā whakahoutanga me ngā pūkete i ia wiki. I ētahi wā, kāore anō kia whakaūhia ngā pūkete e ngā kaimahi o Te Whare Taonga, tēnā pea he hapa kei roto i ngā kōrero.
