I am a writer and researching the 28th Maori Battalion.
My grandfather is John Tamakehu of Parakino, Wanganui. He served in the 28th MB during the Italian Campaign between 1944 and 1945. I assume that he was part of D Company. I welcome contact from anyone with information or stories to share from their tipuna who served in this same campaign.
I am also very keen on hearing from anyone with information and/or stories of their tipuna from C Company, from the Ruatoria region and/or Ngati Porou.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
