Te Rehe Amohanga
Rehe's granddaughter Jacqie Amohanga visited Auckland Museum 15 February 2016.
Jacqui said her grandfather fought at Gallipoli where the Maori survivors were 137 (out of 500?) and those survivors became the founders of the Maori Pioneer Battalion. The Maori Pioneer Battalion marched off Gallopoli.
Rehe was subsequently injured in Europe. While convalescing in England he met the daughter of a music scholar (professor?) Ernest HAYWOOD. They married. Their first son Kiwi Ernest Rehe Amohanga was born in the UK.
They returned to NZ to join in the first ANZAC commemoration.
