Never got to meet my grand father, Haven't heard much about him either, the auntys, uncles and dad never speak about him, the only memory i have of him was a photo my grandmother showed me,its was of him in his army gear, all suited up and ready to go to war,all i can say is im very proud to be his grandson, and i know he would have done his country, his people and his family proud. Moe mai ra e koro. .from your grandson Jonny. .

I wish I had known him. Saw a picture of him playing in a band. He was handsome. I think the band was called Kiwi band. Does anyone know anything about this band or my grandfather?

Kia ora koe Cheyneynay. I knew your Nana very well. She was bought up by my Uncle Eddie Te Kanawa Pou Haereiti at Piripiri. Your grandfather usedto play a saxophone in the band know as Kiwi Rhythm Band who were well know in the Maniapoto area. Do you have the photo of the band?You are welcome to contact me for any information I may haveMy name is Gloria Soundy a kuia from Marokopa Marae. I reside in Kaikohe but am in constant contact with whanau from home. Much love dear.
