  • Jack was a farmer all his life. He was farming at Whangamomona when he got the call to sign up for service overseas. He was shot in the leg three times while in France and while recuperating he was sent to England where he was able to meet up with his mother's relatives (her brother's family). They were treated really well and were able to enjoy many "treats" that his uncle had in his cellar that the government didn't know about. The good food helped them to recover quickly from their wounds. Jack's brother fred was also there after being gassed in France. After returning from the war he married Ethel Stanners and farmed at Whangamomona for a while then moved to Kerikeri (Waipawa) where his brother Will had a farm. He remained here for the rest of his life. Jack died of a heart attack in 1967.
