Wow i just found another addition to my search Wiki Silva aka Sylva is the younger brother to Basil Sylva Serial NO: 802627. And from the date of this death he died on his birthday 26-Mar-1917. May you rest in peace......

Kiaora Monique,This is my whanau too! My Great grandmother, Mere Hiriwa, was Wiki's sister. She married Wi Rawhiti from the Taranaki I think. Do you have any more info on the Silva's? I'm trying to reconnect to our roots too :) My email is [email protected]. Nga mihi,Aja 

Vanessa Hi my grandmother was Kate Sylva and was married to Wiki Sylva Who I think was the one killed in action in Egypt. She had 1 child to him Ben. She then married his brother Robbie Sylva and had 6 children to him. My grandmothers sister was Mary Sylva who was married to Uncle Basil Sylva.

Kia-ora Silva whanau,Wiki and Basil and there wives Kate and Mary Rogers lived in Lake Tangonge Pukepoto at the back of the Kaitaia Timber Mill in 1940 where I was also raised as a child. A Gov't report I have, writtin in 1941 describing their house and children. Contact me if you want a [email protected] Wiki child Ben was there, Glass children Hinemoa, Percy and Punaute were there too. Nga mihi - Bernie
