  • I have recently discovered that I am related to Kate Booth and have found her story inspirational . I inherited a "sculpture" that Kate apparently brought back to NZ with her from Egypt..... I treasure it and hope to pass to down to my family along with the story of Kate's courage and compassion. Thank you for your service Kate. "Lest we forget"
