  • Thankyou to Hunter Fairbairn as he wrote lots of lovely letters to his sister Millie (Amelia Fairbairn) who was on the farm back in New Zealand whilst he was at war. She later names one of her many son's Hunter William Stewart, who is my grandfather. (my father is Donald Stewart) I then have named my son Hunter Freemantle. We now have the copies of those lovely letters, thanks to Lillas Thompson (Hunter Stewart's sister) for keeping them safe all those years. Love Donna
