Kia ora Nicalo, my name is David Walker.  My mother is a Houkamau from Hicks Bay and my maternal granduncle was Pomare (aka Pom) Houkamau who served in C Company.  I have received an email from our local Iwi Liaison Officer who has been in touch with an organisation who are trying to return veterans medals to their descendants.  Toko Houkamau is on that list.  If you get this email, please feel free to copntact me at the above address and I can forwardd the email to you.  Regards,
