|NOTES & SOURCES
Family contact (G-D Mara)
“My grandfather didn’t talk about his wartime experiences with my father.
My grandfather was single when he left for war – it wasn’t until he returned home that he met my grandmother. He didn’t speak about his time at war to her either. It has only been through speaking with other people and researching that we have found out about his time during the war.
While he was in Stalag 18A, he became good friends with several other PoWs, including: Ted Everton, Paki Jones, Matangi Whiti, Tubby Harpwood, John Ledgerwood, Tangle Leach, Stan Martin, Alex Blyth, Jack Isherwood, Frits Southward, Dave Bradford, Peter Oliver, and many others.
When he returned to New Zealand, he followed his family from Hawera to Taumarunui, becoming an office clerk in his family’s timber mill company. He remained in Taumarunui for the rest of the days of his life – raising his family and getting involved in the community.”
