Biographical information

  • A Makiru, a Mangaian of Ivirua village, Cook Islands is described and photographed by Ronald Syme in his 1978 travel book: "a white-haired veteran seated on a box on his little verandah called to me in kitchen Arabic ..." Makiru said "I heard you'd been amongst the Arabs, so was I. All the way from camp in Cairo to Akaba on the Red Sea, and then up to Jaffa and Jerusalem with the British Army under General Allenby." The conversation is recounted - being with the NZEF, digging latrines and unloading ships, in the Gunners with sixteen-pounders, the certificate, medals and pension (p. 117-118).

    Manuka then transhipped to "Malwa" at Sydney for Suez. Listed at Archives New Zealand as MAKIRU, Onogokoriti - WW1 19261 - Army (October 2008) AWMM
