  • My father's name was Logan Matthew Brass from the gum fields in Ahipara. His father name was Robert Brass, who is buried in the family plot at Wainui Ahipara. At this time I am reflecting on all those special people who lost their lives. Especially my whanau. Kia Ora. Anthony Logan (Wiki) Brass.
