Hi my name is Paea my friend Emma and I are school students from Gisborne Intermediate. We are doing a research project about a soldier from WORLD WAR 1. We have chosen Edward brownie Jones. We were wondering if you could tell us where we could find some information on Edward. Maybe would you have some information about him that we could use. We would like to know where he was born. Where he grew up. What did he do in the War? What did he do after the War? Can you give us any interesting information that we could put in our project ? Thank you very much.

Kia ora
