  • I am Clive Arthur Swears', great grandson. Here with me I hold his discharge papers and other various paperwork when he was a soldier during 1914-1916, and then further worked in new zealand for another 2 years as a radio controller. I have researched Clives documents and his life for the past two years. I am proud to be his grandson. I am only 13 years old.
