Kia ora ra whanau Last night my whanau hosted Koro Bombom. Apparently he wanted to go on the Marine and Coastal Bill (fssb) hikoi! Ka mau te wehi o tenei koroua, kei te koi tonu te hinengaro, kei te pakari tonu te tinana! I was such a pleasure having him, even for a short while. Those photo's of him are spot on... kei te pera tonu ra te ahaua o te koroua! Nga mihi ki to whanau e Koro. Naku iti nei Cellia

Kia Ora Bom is my uncle & my father's brother - my dad is Ewan Gillies Serial No. 6752 who was also in the 28 Maori Battalion (HQ Company).Great to see the photos. Wayne
