The Wikiriwhi brothers

The three Wikiriwhi brothers - Ceylon Wikiriwhi (who appears in the Battalion Roll as Ceylon Hirone Wickliffe), Captain Matarehua (Monty) Wikiriwhi DSO, MC, and 'Spider' Wikiriwhi - photographed in Cairo, 12 June 1943.

Can anyone help us confirm the identity of 'Spider' Wikiriwhi (or Wickliffe)? He is possibly Te Tuahu Wikiriwhi. If you can help please post as a comment below or email [email protected].
