  • After he was badly injured he was sent to NZ Military Hospital in Wiltshire, England. This is where he met Lillian Packer. She nursed him in the hospital and after he recovered Mate worked as a cook there. In 1917 they married and in 1918 Mate brought Lillian and their son Alfred back to New Zealand. They settled on land in Whirinaki, Hokianga under the returned servicemen's rehabilitation scheme. Together they farmed and had 11 more children. The road to their farm still bears the name Vujcich Road.
