I have a photo of uncle Albert Pakinga, I am have meant to make some contact with the direct family of Albert but as the years have gone by I have not been able to. I believe he married Jane a very beautiful young girl. If the family can contact me through your website, then maybe I can give this lovely photo I have. I am now 75 and 76 this year. Every year I bring this photo out and look at it Anzac day. I treasure it.
Is it possible?
When the war finished and the soldiers came home, as a child
i remember standing at the railway station and the train stopped, with the crowd, watching the soldiers waving and those who lived in Paeroa got out, then the train went on. It was amazing.
