  • Hemi Hill, and his brothers Robert Hill (aka Waru Werohia) and Himiona Bruce Hill (enlisted under an unknown name) as well as an adoptive brother Whetu Werohia, all served in the Great War. Hemi and his brothers were the sons of Roger Hill (former Commissioned Officer in the Waikato and Auckland Militias, during the NZ Land Wars) and Whareherehere Mataki Anaru (Tutawake, Te Whanau-A-Apanui) of Whitianga/Omaio in the Bay of Plenty. Roger's father was a solicitor and originally lived in Doughty St, Bloomsbury. England (the Hill's were neighbours to Charles Dickens when he wrote Oliver Twist). It's believed that Hemi was not of age and enlisted with a friend Mita Hohua. Hemi was injured by German artillery fire on the first day of the Battle of Messines, June 7, 1917, witnessed by Mita and Hemi's adoptive brother Whetu; who carried Hemi back to the Dressing Station at Kandahar Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 7 February 2016 - written by: Brent - Other Relative - 12 April 2015 (see Hemi Hill's Page)
