  • Tuhuru Bannister was my great-great-uncle, being the uncle of my maternal grandfather Stanley Sampson. My son Anton will walk in Tuhuru's footsteps this ANZAC Day when he visits Gallipoli. I did a little research and wrote this piece: http://overyholidays.blogspot.co.nz/2015/04/tuhuru-bannister.html
