  • kia Orana , Iaveta Karika paying respect and honouring my great-granduncle.
    your great-grandnephew George teariki Karika.

    Forward the light brigade was there a man dismayed
    not tho the soldier knew someone had blundered
    their's not to make Reply
    their's not to reason Why
    their's but to do and Die
    into the valley of death rode the six hundred
    by Alfred Lord Tennyson - 1855
    Public - George - Other relative - 25 April 2020
