Papa - Bill (Wiremu Wiriwiri Hoko) in his Army uniform

Papa WIREMU WIRIWIRI HOKO in his Army Uniform - 28th Māori Battallion.  This photo was given to my late father Matiu by his sister and Papa is hanging proudly on the wall at our home in the Tūwharetoa rohe.

He taonga o Tumatauenga - Rua tekau ma waru rangi

Reference:

This photo was taken by my eldest brother and mokopuna Maaka (Marcus) from a digital camera. That flash light represents the light that brought my Papa back from the war in Greece. 

Moemoeaa Papa !!
