I am from service in education and aged 75. I live at Waitahanui, Taupo. My interest in the battalion is like most my age.
I remember them copming back, and i remember the Mobile canteen visiting Rangiawhia Native School. The photo in the Horiana Rupapera was not taken before the soldiers left but during the week of their return. The other soldier is Mu Timoti Hetaraka (middle). Karaitiana Matiu didnot go with the 28th but was an instructor in the army. The others of course are whanau. Horiana and Mu were from where that photo was taken ie Whatuwhiwhi and were of Te Whanau Moana and Rorohuri hapu as was Karaitiana.
