  • I came with my family from England to Tauranga 16 years ago. I was born and grew up in Oxford.

    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.
