Howdy I just came across an item from the Rotorua Review; page 3 for 5 October 2011 about researcher Kerry Bell trying to locate relatives so that 2 Memorial Crosses can be returned to his family. They were found during a cleanup of a rental property in Sunset Road about 15 years ago and then put in to storage. The journalist for the story was Simon Earle and I saw it on a media round up for Museums Aotearoa but cannot see the article online unless it is a paid for view. I cannot show the article on here due to copyright. Cheers Sarndra - Auckland, NZ. www.sarndra.com Blog: http://invokinglibitina.blogspot.com/ Twitter: Magna_Quies Flickr.com: sandyem
