Alfred William Kent
I came with my family from England to Tauranga 16 years ago. I was born and grew up in Oxford.
Public - John Douglas - Self - 21 October 2018
Imagine my surprise when the first memorial I see on The Strand in Tauranga is from a lad from Oxford.
I imagine that he loved his new country as much as we do. It's just a shame that due to the folly of man that he was unable to enjoy it.
John Rothery (Tauranga)
