i was told that my dad was born 1920 died 5.6.1979 aged 60.... my dad is now inspired by his many mokopuna,, my dad was very personal and did not share any stories with us about his role in the Maori Battalion as i was growing up, all i can remember was seeing dad all dressed up with badges on and getting ready to march in the dawn parade in Murupara. You are my true warrior dad RIP.

I acknowledge my dad whom is now an inspiration to my mokos and children, my dad was very private about his role in the 28th maori battalion, but memories of my dad is so humbleing as I would briefly see him exit our home with his suit on and badges every Anzac morning to march the dawn parade. You will always be my hero dad,,,R.I.P
