Albert Victor Waitford/Waetford (my mother, Ngaraiti Clotilde Waetford's father): WWI 16/541, NZ (Maori) Pioneer Battalion 1914-1918, A Company.  

Interesting fact: January 2015, a resident at Park tal-Majestral, previously Malta, found the following engravings on a rock on the cliffs of North Malta: 16/541, A Co, Maori, 2/5/1915, AV Waitford. Koro was training there April to June 1915. The engravings were almost 100 years old when Albert Ghio and his wife came across it. Koro passed away in Whanganui in Dec 1965.
