“Dad never talked about his time in the war, when we asked why he didn’t go to the RSA (Returned and Services Association) he would always respond why would I want to remember that time.
A cousin told me at his funeral that when he returned to New Zealand, he slept with a machete under his pillow for the first few years.”
