My Uncle Wananga was seriously wounded in WW2. He was sent home and while recovering at Te Puia Springs hospital met my Aunty Polly (maiden name Te Awe Awe) who was a nurse at the hospital. Uncle Wananga and Aunty Polly married and lived at Rangiotu on their dairy farm. My brother and I stayed with them many times in our childhood days. Brig.
