  • William Claude HORSCROFT was my Maternal Grandfather. Married to Thelma Dulcie CATRAN they had only one living child, my mother Amy Fay HORSCROFT. My darling grandfather (Pa) has been the inspiration for my life. A kinder, sweeter, more gentlemanly gentleman you could ever wish to meet. My childhood memories of him are vast and most precious. I am certainly proud to call him Pa. He worked for the Auckland Regional Authority for many years until his early retirement due to ill health and subsequent demise. I remember his funeral service as though it was yesterday. He often talked with me about the places he found himself in during the war years and I still have coins from his travels, kept most precious.
