Hirini Heke
Date Posted
I am the great grand nephew of Hirini Heke. He is the brother to my great grandfather Remana Heke. My father Quigg Heke is his nephew. My great grand uncle was in the 28th Maori Battalion along with many of my other relatives from my mother's side. He received Medals which are presently worn by his name sake Hirini Henare from Motatau. I never knew my great Uncle Hirini but I can see him in my father Quigg Heke. He is the image of my dad. He fought for us and our country, I hope many of us younger generation will remember them and that their death was not invain. Mahiapoake Heke
