  • As well as Quarter Master in WW1 Eric was also a Sergeant in the Wellington Home Guard in WW2, and later bought a property in Pukerua Bay that he became familiar with during his home guard duties. A wonderful dad to Bob and Val and husband to Hazel, proud of what he did during War and in peacetime to help the Country return to normal productive times.
