  • Gordon Wright was my grandfather. I am here because he risked his life at Gallipoli on the beaches. He made it back wounded physically and mentally. He was 18 years old at the time.

  • Gosh I didn't know how much of your life you gave to keeping New Zealand safe during the War. You didn't talk about this to us, your grandchildren. I suppose it is a time in your life when it is not something you would want to remember. Thank you Gaddy. Debbie

  • Loving memories by the only surviving child (one of five), Patricia Sara Margaret, of Gordon Thomas and his wife Alma Frances - married in 1920. A hard working father, who never missed a dawn service until his crippling stroke in the mid 1960s. Ever loyal to his country, Gordon also served in W.W.2 as an instructor W.O.1. Gordon: 18/10/1895 - 28/01/1971
