This is my Uncle Jackson Phillips who went to war as part of the Ngāti Maniapoto contribution to the War effort.
Six of my other uncles also went away with the 28 Māori Battalion. They were Hautapu Newton, Edward Ngarotata, James Herewini Te Tahi, Charlie Te Whau, James Porima Rangitutia and Douglas Te Whau.
